The 2020/21 Kenya Volleyball Federation League will not serve off this year, SPORTS AFRICA can authoritatively report.
Kenya was in the process of aligning her calendar with that of the international volleyball governing body, the FIVB.
However, that dream failed to materialize, thanks to the disruptive Covid-19.
The 2020 KVF league served off last January with just one leg being staged before the season was abruptly called off in June as the virus wreaked havoc.
The Kenya’s calendar used to run from February to November but the federation had laid down plans to revert to the globally accepted October to May calendar.
After starting the season in February, the federation had hoped that the campaign would last until September then pave way for a new season that was set to run from October 2020 to May 2021.
This, will, however, remain a pipe dream with barely 30 days to the end of the year and the federation reportedly “uninterested” in releasing the new calendar.
“We don’t even have a calendar yet,” one of the coaches told SPORTS AFRICA.
“The government has okayed the resumption of the league (without fans) but the federation, it seems, is not interested. From the look of things, we’ll have to cross the year before the season starts,” added the tactician who did not wish to be named for fear of reprisal.
Should the new season fail to take place, it means that Kenya will take another year to fully align her calendar with that of the parent body.
The earliest the league can start is late January, meaning that the new season will have to end by June, considering that the Olympics are scheduled for July.
