V-League championship celebration on Dec. 12—Women’s Hyundai E&C-Hungkuk Life 1-2, men’s Woori Card also wins with 3 points

The race for the 2023-2024 V-League regular season title will come to a close as early as Wednesday.

Hyundai E&C and Heungkuk Saengsim, the 1-2 leaders in women’s volleyball, will face off in the final six rounds of the season at Suwon Gymnasium on Wednesday. It’s a chance for Hyundai E&C to clinch the league title at home. Leader Hyundai E&C has 77 points (25 wins, 9 losses), a four-point lead over second-place 메이저 토토사이트 Heungkuk Life (73 points, 26 wins, 8 losses).

The race between the two teams, who are separated by one point, tilted slightly in Hyundai E&C‘s favor in the previous match. On the 8th, ‘chasers’ Heungkuk Saengsung, who were trying to regain the lead, were stymied by last-place Pepper Savings Bank. The next day, Hyundai E&C, which had suffered two consecutive losses, took control of the race with a three-point victory over IBK.

Hyundai E&C only needs to win the head-to-head match on Dec. 12 to clinch the title. Alternatively, they can win the remaining two games and add three points. Even if they lose against Heungkuk Life on the 12th, they can still clinch the title with three points against Pepper Savings Bank on the 16th.

In the V League, the winner of a 3-0 or 3-1 set win is awarded 3 points. In full-set matches, the winning team will receive two points and the losing team will receive one point.

The men’s title could also be decided on the same day. Leaders Woori Card will host Hyundai Capital at Yugwansoon Gymnasium in Cheonan. The momentum has shifted to Woori Card after Korean Air, which is in second place with one point, lost to OK Financial Group in a full set on Oct. 10. If Woori Card (69 points, 23 wins and 11 losses) can pick up three points against Hyundai Capital and Samsung Fire on Nov. 16, they can end Korean Air’s (68 points, 22 wins and 13 losses) four-game losing streak with only one game remaining against KB Insurance on Nov. 14.

Woori Card’s opponent is fourth-ranked Hyundai Capital (50 points), whose ‘spring volleyball’ hopes have been dashed. If Hyundai Capital doesn’t get a point today, they will miss out on the postseason. They need to get within three points of third-place OK Financial Group (57 points), which has already secured a spot in the Spring Volleyball League, to make it to the semifinals.
