CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia volleyball will play an 11-match slate, including 10 matches against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents, in the spring portion of the 2020-21 season.
The ACC has adopted a pod scheduling system for the spring season, consisting of three teams competing at five sites each weekend. The conference schedule runs for five weekends from March to April.
Virginia opens the spring portion of the schedule with a home match against UMBC on February 19. The Cavaliers and Retrievers are slated for a 6 p.m. start inside Memorial Gymnasium. Virginia then resumes ACC play on March 6 at Pitt and will then face Georgia Tech the following day. On March 13-14, the Cavaliers head to Miami to face Syracuse and the host Hurricanes.
Virginia’s lone home weekend of the spring comes on March 19-21. The Cavaliers will face Florida State and Louisville during the three-day pod. UVA then travels to Notre Dame for bouts with Clemson (March 27) and the Irish (March 28) before concluding the season with matches against Boston College (April 2) and Wake Forest (April 3) in Winston-Salem, N.C.
The current guidelines for sports venues provided by the Commonwealth of Virginia under the “Forward Virginia” plan (updated Nov. 13, 2020), allow for the lesser of 30 percent occupancy of the facility or 250 patrons.
Due to health and safety considerations, in addition to the current guidelines for sports venues set by the Commonwealth of Virginia, attendance for UVA home volleyball competitions will be limited to the family of student-athletes and coaching staff until further notice.
Should the Commonwealth of Virginia adjust the protocols for spectator attendance, the UVA athletics department will announce new capacity guidelines and other protocols to attend events.
