Bangkok, Thailand, November 23, 2020 – The Qatar Volleyball Association has recently confirmed the 4th Men’s National Championship draw will be conducted on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, at 6pm local time in the QVA Hall Meeting Room, volleyball.qa said in its news release on Friday.
Teams in the 4th Men’s National Volleyball Tournament will be divided to two groups for group round-robin preliminaries, with only top team from each group advancing to the final showdown.

To participate in the national tournament, it is permissible for a player to change a federation or for whom the QVA is considered his original association.
One player under the age of 21, a citizen must be present or treated as a citizen on the field at all times – except for the change with the Libero – and another player under the age of 21, a citizen, or treated as a citizen as a substitute player for the first player, must be present in order to provide an opportunity for contact and experience. The matches are for young citizen players. Failure to comply with this condition will result in the loss of the match.
