How to arrange the schedule and competition system?

  In previous years, the National Volleyball Championship was scheduled to be held before the start of the league.

At that time, the national players were often still participating in the national team training, so the competition received limited attention.

Affected by the epidemic, this year's national championship was postponed to September.

At present, the national team training has ended, and the appearance of the national players will add a lot to the competition.

  There are 13 teams participating in the championship this year. The Shanghai, Shandong, Liaoning, Tianjin, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Beijing, Fujian, Henan, Sichuan, Yunnan, and Hebei teams will be divided into two groups according to last year’s ranking. Perform a single round robin.

  The top four teams in the group will compete in cross-elimination until the winner is determined.

The 5-7th place in the first stage of the competition will form Group C, and the group will go through a single loop, and 9-13 will be decided.

  Among them, 7 teams from Shanghai, Tianjin, Jiangsu, Beijing, Fujian, Yunnan, and Hebei are in Group A, and the other 6 teams are in Group B.

There are more teams in Group A, and their strength is stronger. The competition for qualifying places will undoubtedly be more intense.

Who will win the championship?

  It is worth mentioning that the Bayi Women's Volleyball Team, the champion of the previous tournament, did not participate this time, which means that national player Yuan Xinyue will not appear in this competition.

In addition, Zhu Ting, the leader of the Chinese women's volleyball team, was also unable to compete because of a wrist injury.

  However, although Zhu Ting is missing, the performance of each team is still worth looking forward to.

As a veteran of China's volleyball team, Tianjin Women's Volleyball Team is considered the favorite to win this competition.

  "Post-00s" will be the main attacker Li Yingying will partner with teenager Wang Yizhu to represent the Tianjin team.

Both of them are outstanding players in the domestic league.

Among them, Li Yingying helped Tianjin women's volleyball team win the league championship in the 2017-18 season and has repeatedly performed brilliantly in the national team.

  This time, with Tianjin team captain Yao Di missing due to injury, Li Yingying not only has to take on important tasks on the offensive end, but also has a lot of pressure on the first pass and defense.

  Looking at the groups and schedule of the Tianjin Women's Volleyball Team, the match against Jiangsu Women's Volleyball Team on the evening of September 26 is undoubtedly the highlight of the group stage.

The duel between Li Yingying and Zhang Changning and Gong Xiangyu, who are also national players, and the fighting methods of famous marshals Wang Baoquan and Cai Bin will all add to this strong dialogue.

  Unlike the Super League, the championship does not involve foreign players.

For certain teams that previously relied on foreign aid in the league, their strength will undoubtedly drop to a certain extent.

  Last season's third place in the Beijing women's volleyball league, the national players Liu Xiaotong and Zeng Chunlei were absent, coupled with no foreign aid, the Beijing team in Group A may encounter the impact of Tianjin, Jiangsu and Fujian women's volleyball team.

  The situation of the Guangdong women's volleyball team is very similar to that of the Beijing women's volleyball team.

Because previously in the league, the core position of the team was held by foreign aid.

This time playing in the form of an all-China squad puts a higher test on the formation of the coach Fang Yan.

Fortunately, the Guangdong women's volleyball team is in the weaker Group B, and there is still hope for the team to qualify.

  In Group B, there is another team that attracts the attention of fans-Liaoning Women's Volleyball Team.

Although veterans Yan Ni and Wang Yimei are absent from this competition, the return of Ding Xia and Hu Mingyuan has increased the thickness of the Liaoning women's volleyball team.

With a high probability, the Liaoning women's volleyball team can successfully enter the top 8.
