One week till kickoff!

The 2019-20 V.League Season brings new rules for how teams will be ranked.

Previously teams were ranked by:

Points ->Wins ->Set Percentage ->Scoring Rate

Beginning with the 2019-20 season teams will be ranked by:

Wins ->Points ->Set Percentage ->Scoring Rate

This is in line with the way FIVB has been doing it since 2015 or so.

V.League is going to use the Hawkeye Challenge system this year. It's limited to the camera shots and won't show the floating ball animations. The 3 meter line is not on camera. Each team gets three challenges in a match, if they win the challenge they keep it.

This should speed things up. Challenges have been notoriously slow, often taking 3-4 minutes, which is longer than the break between sets.
