TEHRAN (Iran News) – The 2020 Asian Men’s Clubs Volleyball Championship will be held in August in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.
The annual topflight tournament was due to take place from April 18 to 25, but was postponed due to the grave COVID-19 concerns and rescheduled for August 30 to September 6.
If things are going satisfactorily and life gets back to normal, it is likely that the first AVC Championship this year will be the Asian Men’s Clubs Volleyball Championship in Nakhon Ratchasima.
The Championship, an international volleyball competition in Asia and Oceania contested by the men’s clubs of the AVC’s affiliated member countries, had dated back to 1999 when only six teams from five nations including two host sides took part in the inaugural Asian Men’s Club Championship in Hefei.
The previous 20 Asian Men’s Clubs Championship tournaments have been won by six different countries, with Iran claiming 14 times and Korea 2. Qatar, Kazakhstan, China, and Chinese Taipei shared one gold apiece.
Shahrdari Varamin is the defending champion and has been drawn in Pool B along with Vietnam, Thailand B, and Korea.
Pool A consists of Thailand A, Australia, and Hong Kong.
