Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games earlier this year rescheduled the Games for 2021.
The volleyball schedule remains the same as originally planned for, though adjusted to the new dates of 2021.
As volleyball returns to the place where it made its Olympic debut in 1964, for the first time in history the competition will conclude with the women's final, on Sunday, August 8, just a few hours ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Closing Ceremony and one day after the men's gold is decided.
The preliminary round matches will be held on alternate days for men and women, each day including six matches in three sessions of two.
Action begins with the men's competition on Saturday, July 24 as Rio 2016 silver medallists Italy take on Canada at 9.00 local time (0.00 GMT). Defending champions Brazil open their campaign with the second match of the opening day at 11.05 (2.05 GMT).
The preliminary round in the men's tournament concludes on Sunday, August 1, followed by quarterfinals on Tuesday, August 3 and semifinals on Thursday, August 5. The medals matches are scheduled for Saturday, August 7, starting at 13.30 local time (4.30 GMT) for the bronze medal match and at 21.15 (12.15 GMT) for the gold medal match.
The order of quarterfinals and semifinals will be defined following the conclusion of the preliminary round and quarterfinals respectively, to ensure the maximum audience for the athletes and the sport in the different territories broadcasting the Olympic Games.
The women's tournament begins on Sunday, July 25 with first serve at 9.00 local time (0.00 GMT) when Russia take on Italy. Defending champions China play their first game at 16.25 (7.25 GMT) against Turkey.

With the July 15 tax deadline coming up quick, taxes are on our minds. Below are five common mistakes that small businesses – such as your volleyball club – could make when it comes to taxes.
Financial Statements should be updated monthly and reviewed at least quarterly for any errors, and those errors should be fixed immediately. The more frequently record keeping is performed, the easier filing should go.
Your business should be paying quarterly taxes. Maintaining the proper payment schedule and payment accuracy will help minimize any trigger for red flags and paying penalties.
If you work from home, you are eligible for a home office deduction. Be prepared to know the percentage of your home that you use for business, whether it is part of a room or a whole room.
Do not forget to save all your receipts when you travel. If you travel for work, you can deduct expenses for multiple items, including mileage on your car. Visit the IRS’ website for the full list.
Pay attention to why you might be expensing an item. Are you purchasing uniforms for your club teams? Helping your kids’ club as a team parent? Make sure you identify the true reason for your purchase and keep your accounts separate. Also, avoid expensing items to your personal card and reimbursing yourself. The best way to avoid this is to give your business its own bank account with a business card and checks.
Choosing the wrong structure can affect the way you file taxes. Make sure you know the difference and find the best structure for your business. See the Small Business Administration’s website for more information on business structure.
If you avoid these missteps throughout the year, tax time should pass much more smoothly.
