Paola Egonu strikes past the Novara block of Malwina Smarzek and Cristina Chirichella as she leads Conegliano to the title in last year's Italian Cup.

The whole of Round 13 of the Italian women's league scheduled for Sunday has been postponed to a later date, following coronavirus complications invloving a significant number of clubs.

It would have been the last round of the first half of the Regular Season and the standings upon the conclusion of this first half would determine the pairings of teams for the quarterfinals of the country's A1 Cup competition.

As things stand, the pairings have now been determined according to the standings after Round 12, and the schedule for the quarterfinals has been confirmed as follows, for Thursday 30 December (all times local, GMT+1):

  • 18:00 - (1) Prosecco DOC Imoco Volley Conegliano v (8) Bosca S. Bernardo Cuneo
  • 20:00 - (2) Igor Gorgonzola Novara v (7) Il Bisonte Firenze
  • 18:30 - (3) Vero Volley Monza v (6) Reale Mutua Fenera Chieri
  • 19:00 - (4) Savino Del Bene Scandicci v (5) Unet e-work Busto Arsizio

With last year's finalists seeded at opposite ends of the bracket, Conegliano and Novara cannot meet before the final.

The semifinals are scheduled for 5 January 2022 with the final to follow on 6 January.
