    Competition Info:


    Regular League:

    • The regular league (RL) begins on Saturday, October 16th, 2021.
    • Matches during weekdays will have a start time of 19:00 KST and matches on weekends and public holidays will have a start time of 16:00 KST.
    • Monday and Thursday will be a rest day with no match been held with the possible exception if either day falls on a public holiday.
    • The RL consists of 6 rounds, a total of 126 matches.
    • A single round consists of 21 matches, with each team having to play against all the other 6 teams once each round.
    • Each team will play a total of 6 matches against each of the other 6 teams during the RL (3 home matches and 3 away matches).
    • Each team will play a total of 36 matches during the RL.
    • The RL ranking is decided based on the following criteria:

      1. Victory Points > 2. Wins > 3. Sets Ratio > 4. Points Ratio > 5. Most recent head-to-head winner

      3 Victory Points for a 3-0 or 3-1 set win,
      2 Victory Points for a 3-2 set win,
      1 Victory Point for a 2-3 set loss,
      0 Victory Point for a 0-3 or 1-3 set loss.

      In the unlikely event that three or more teams have the same number of Victory Points, the same number of Wins, the same Sets Ratio, and the same Points Ratio, the Wins, Sets Ratio, and Points Ratio will be re-calculated based on only the matches between the concern teams.


    With Pepper Savings Bank now joining the league, it is very likely the women's division will only have Monday as a rest day just like how the men's division.



    Postseason:

    • The postseason consists of Semi-Playoffs (S-PO), Playoffs Series (PO), and the Championship Series (CS).
    • The RL champion will automatically qualify for the CS.
    • The S-PO match will be held when the difference between the RL 3rd-place team and the RL 4th-place team is less than 3 Victory Points.
    • The S-PO match if held will be played at the RL 3rd-place team's home venue.
    • The PO (A best of 3-match series) is between the RL runner-up and the S-PO winner or RL 3rd-place team (if S-PO was not held).
    • PO Match 1 & 3 will be held at the RL runner-up's home venue.
    • PO Match 2 will be held at the S.PO winner's home court.
    • PO Match 3 will only be played if needed.
    • The CS (A best of 5-match series) is between the RL champion and the PO winner.
    • CS Match 1, 2, and 5 will be held at the RL champion's home venue.
    • CS Match 3 and 4 will be held at the PO winner's home venue.
    • CS Match 4 and 5 will only be played if needed.


    KOVO has not officially confirmed how the women's division postseason with 7 teams will be held. The postseason format shown above is based on how the men's division postseason is held (Ch. 2 Article 17).

  • Hmm... I'm surprised Pepper hasn't made a move or signed any libero so far. Are they planning to throw a high school kid to the wolves? It's a difficult position for a rookie. But I guess it shouldn't be too difficult to trade for one as many teams have two or even three very decent liberos.


    Han Ji-hyun was available, but I understand them passing on her and her "less than stellar" reputation.
