As a result, the Dialog President’s Gold Cup Volleyball Championship (Super League and Novices) which was scheduled to begin today have been postponed indefinitely. The finals of this tournament was to be held on November 28.

Meanwhile, the 2020 Volleyball Nationals which was to be conducted in November-December has also been postponed to next year. This includes the Munchee National Volleyball Championships and Sunquick Beach Volleyball National Championships.
