Bangkok, Thailand, November 30, 2019 – Invitations for 2019 AVC Championships had been sent to all AVC Affiliated National Federations in their consideration for participation in six Championships including the 20th Asian Men’s and Women’s Volleyball Championships, which will decide top eight teams to be eligible for the Continental Qualifications for 2020 Olympic Games.

The circular invitations had been sent with attachments of the 2019 FIVB and AVC Competition Calendar, six AVC Competition Regulations, National Entry Forms, AVC Uniform Publicity and 2019 AVC Timeline.

AVC are due to organise six major Championships next year comprising the 2019 Asian Men’s Club  Volleyball Championship in Taipei between April 18 and 26, the 2019 Asian Women’s Club Volleyball Championship in Tianjin, China from April 27 to May 5, the 3rd Asian Women’s U23 Volleyball Championship in Hanoi, Vietnam during July 13 and 21 and the 3rd Asian Men’s U23 Volleyball Championship in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar from August 3 to 11.

The remaining two events – the 20th Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship in Seoul, Korea between August 17 and 25 and the 20th Asian Senior Men’s Volleyball Championship in Tehran, Iran from September 13 to 21, have been regarded as the continent’s most competitive competition as AVC will be putting each team in the spotlight.

To be pitted against one another in the next year’s Asian Senior Volleyball Championships,  all participating teams will not only chase the ultimate glory of the Asian title, but also fight for eight slots on offer in each gender for the Continental Qualification for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. Only the eventual winners from each men’s and women’s event of the Continental Qualifications will make the cut for the Tokyo Games between July 25 and August 9, 2020.

According to the 2019 AVC Calendar, the Asian Continental Qualification for 2020 Olympic Games (Women) is due to be held either between October 22 and 27, 2019 or in January 2020, while the Asian Continental Qualification for 2020 Olympic Games (Men) is scheduled for either from October 29 to November 3, 2019 or in January 2020. However, host countries for both Continental Qualifications have yet been announced.

To confirm their participation, affiliated National Federations must send their official entries to AVC and the organisers not later than January 15, 2019. However, the submission deadline must be made at the required time and fees are based on the final entry information received. The late entry before January 31, 2019 is also possible with a US$500 fine. Interested Federations have been requested to submit their entry forms according to the deadline to make sure everything will be on the right track.

For further information, the AVC Headquarters can be reached via email: avc.bk@asianvolleyball.net. All informations about the 2019 AVC Calendar as well as the 2019 AVC Championships and AVC Competition Regulations will soon be posted on AVC website at www.asianvolleyball.net.
