Rebisco's professional volleyball teams, Creamline and the Choco Mucho, will sit out the Philippine National Volleyball Federation's (PNVF) Champions League in November.

/ 3 November 2021

Rebisco, being the event’s platinum sponsor, will still back the inaugural Champions League despite both of its professional club teams confirming not to participate. 

Rebisco team managers Alan Acero for Creamline and Rolando Delfino for Choco Mucho bared that the two squads have decided that they will take this moment to take some rest following their participation in the PVL Open Conference. 

The PNVF already laid out the participating teams that will see action in the men’s and women’s teams next month, having seven teams competing in each division.

The women’s tournament is scheduled on November 20-25, with the Baguio Lady Highlanders, the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers, and the Perlas Spikers in Pool A, while the Chery Tiggo Crossovers, California Precision Sports, Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors and the Petro Gazz Angels in Pool B. 

On the other hand, the men’s event is slated on November 29 to December 4, bannering the teams such as Basilan Peace Riders, Go For Gold Air Force Aguilas and the Manileño Spikers in Pool A, and Global Remit, Sabong International Spikers, MRT-Negros and Team Dasma Monarchs in Pool B.

“We commend the PNVF for this competition that brings together the country’s top caliber teams, not just from the PVL but from the regions as well. Metro Manila teams will be competing with provincial volleyball teams and is a big step in our common dream to grow the sport,” said Noric Ng, Business Unit Head of Rebisco.

“Next year the PNVF intends to welcome more teams across the country as well. We at Rebisco are happy that our national volleyball program is moving in the right direction,” he added.
