QINHUANGDAO, China, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- All of the 13 Chinese men's volleyball league teams arrived in Qinhuangdao, Hebei province, where the league's 2020 season is going to restart on Thursday.

The Chinese top men's volleyball league will resume behind closed doors on August 20 and its first match is scheduled to compete between Shanghai and Henan.

"Restarting the league is very important for improving the competitiveness of Chinese men's volleyball. If some teams are dismissed, it will cause a huge loss," said Li Quanqiang, the director of the Volleyball Administration Center of the General Administration of Sport of China.

"The resumption of the 2020 season will give players more opportunities, as well as greater training," Li added.

According to a press conference on Monday, all teams have been tested twice for both the COVID-19 nucleic acid test and antibody test, while the competition and living zones have been totally quarantined to ensure safety. Enditem
