Well done Volleyball Australia

Posted by devo on September 28, 2009

Yep – you’re reading that correctly. Devo is congratulateling Volleyball Australia. The Asian Volleyball Confederation, the FIVB (neither sites have yet to acknowledge the situation), and news reports are all behind VA on news on the postponed Asian Men’s Championships.

The tournament started today using just one hall with 6 or 7 matches per day. The organisers plan to recover the lost day by removing the quarter final cross over matches.

The format otherwise stays the same, i.e. Top 2 teams from each pool advance to one of the quarter final pools where they will play the top 2 from another pool (eg 2 from pool A join 2 from pool C).  After these matches the top 2 teams from each quarter final pool will cross over in the semi-finals.

For Australia, this means that the team played Lebanon at 10pm AEST Sunday 27th.  The rest of their schedule for pool play is as follows
28-9. 9pm AEST vs Maldives
29-9. 10pm AEST vs Qatar
30-9 (1/10) 1am AEST vs Korea

All score results and match reports will be posted to the VA website, or you can follow more up to date scores via Twitter or Facebook
