Minneapolis (Feb. 8, 2021) – The National Collegiate Volleyball Federation (NCVF) has announced the cancellation of the 2021 NCVF Championships which were scheduled to take place at the Minneapolis Convention Center on April 1-3, 2021.
"We are of course heartbroken to have to make this announcement - for our students and for all of our supporters whose annual efforts create one of the most magical experiences in sport," the NCVF said in a statement.
The NCVF Championships is the largest intercollegiate volleyball tournament in the world, featuring 500 men's and women's college club volleyball teams and more than 6,500 student-athletes from across the nation. The season-ending NCVF tournament was founded in 1985 by Minnesota native Gary Colberg, a long-time administrator of the UC Davis intramural program, a coach of the Sacramento State men’s club team and an internationally certified official.
