  • Pandemic or no pandemic, I've always thought that it should be 14 players. The 12-player-squad was determined when there was no Libero but with the introduction of the Libero into the game, the limit should be increased to 14 to ensure there would be a backup for all positions.

  • The reason for 12 players is the lack of space in the Olympic village mostly. Considering the pandemic, I'm sure organizers will do their best to reduce the number of people in the village so I think it is unlikely that we will see 14 players rosters
