Macau will not host an annual leg of the Volleyball Grand Prix next year, the Sports Development Board (ID) announced this week. The International Volleyball Association (FIVB) has decided that only two annual legs of the tournament are to be held in China. One of the competition’s annual legs will be held in mainland China every year, with the other being hosted by only one of the SARs each year. The tournament is set to return to Macau in 2016. FIVB’s decision is due to its expectation of covering many countries and regions. China has been hosting more annual legs than other countries involved in the tournament.
