ANKARA, May 11 (Reuters) - Turkey canceled its basketball and volleyball leagues for the 2019-2020 season on Monday, with no relegated teams and the current standings valid for European competition, following a stoppage in play due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Because the teams did not compete in the play-offs, we will not be declaring any of them champions," said Mehmet Akif Ustundag, the chairman of the volleyball federation.
