Volleyball Video Challenge System Scandal

Posted by

I have written here and here about the volleyball Video Challenge System as it was used in the European Champions League Final Four.  That system was based on the system used in the Polish League.  In the Polish League teams can also challenge balls touched by the block.  The system is intended to make things clearer and reduce disputes.  Apparently it doesn’t always work.

***  The ‘scandal’ referred to in the title is not my opinion, but the title of the youtube clip.


  1. In the end I think the main reason for including video review as part of the decision-making process is because when matches are telecast it is possible for the viewers to see horrible mistakes that are made, but can’t be changed, even when there is immediate compelling evidence.

    The problem is that there will always be a fine line, its just that slow motion HD footage makes that line smaller. On the other hand, if you slow it down and watch it over and over again, maybe the ‘thickness’ of the line is actually the same?


  2. Your style is unique compared to other folks I’ve read stuff from. I appreciate you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I’ll just book mark

  3. HI all I invite you to join our facebook page about the Brazilian Volleyball
    here is our last update “Sheila will extent her stay in Sollys/Osasco for another season. Some people believed she could move to another Brazilian volleyball team, due to her “lackluster” performance in the final, however the true is that she will be in Osasco for two consecutive seasons. Osasco will also keep Camila Brait, Adenizia and Thaisa. “
