Volleyball at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

Since the Covid-19 pandemic put a pause on the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Volleyball Tournaments, they are now happening this year starting on July 24, 2021. That means there will be lots of volleyball to watch. And we don’t know about you, but after watching the Volleyball Nations League tournament, we’re dying to watch some more international matches.

The Olympic Games are happening in Tokyo, Japan this year with the indoor volleyball competition taking place at Ariake Arena in Ariake, and the beach volleyball tournament being held at Shiokaze Park, in the temporary Shiokaze Park Stadium.

And if you’re getting ready to watch and need to know everything that’s happening with the Olympics and who to watch, don’t worry. We here at Volleyverse are here to give you everything you need to know from the history of volleyball at the Olympics to who’s projected to win the gold medal according to experts.

Covid-19 protocol

Japan has banned all overseas visitors and spectators for the Olympics and are still deciding on whether to let local spectators watch the events. According to an article released on ESPN, Japan is expecting around 59,000 visitors which includes media, athletes, broadcasters, coaches, officials and athletics representatives for both the Olympics and Paralympics.

All athletes are expected to follow the rules outlined in the Olympics playbook that mean’s we most likely won’t see athletes shaking hands, like we saw at the FIVB VNL. So the volleyball players will line up on the end lines and clap when the match is finished. It will be great to see volleyball in action at the Olympics but it is going to be interesting to watch with all the COVID-19 rules!

If all that COVID-19 chat hasn’t put you off then let’s dive in and watch some awesome volleyball!
