The title compound, [V2F2O4(C 10H8N)2], is a centrosymmetric binuclear vanadium(V) species with the metal ions in a distorted octa-hedral environment. The coordination geometries of the symmetry-equivalent VV atoms are defined by cis-terminal fluoride and oxide groups, unsymmetrically bridging oxide groups and the N-atom donors of the bipyridyl ligand. The crystal packing is stabilized by weak inter-molecular C-H⋯O and C-H⋯F hydrogen bonds.
