FIRST PH PRO VOLLEY LEAGUE LIKELY TO PUSHBACK OPENING AMID LOCKDOWN
Premier Volleyball League’s (PVL) plans to open the conference in May 2021 is looking like to be delayed due to the alarming spike of COVID-19 and after the prolonged enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in “NCR Plus”.
PVL President Ricky Palou shared that the opening of the conference is likely not to happen at the scheduled time but still to discuss the league’s other options.
“It’s beginning to look like we’re not going to meet our opening target date in May. The IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force) will not allow us to have games with the current pandemic situation,” Palou shared.
Nonetheless, the league is still optimistic about its plans as Palou shared in a text message sent to ABS-CBN News that “We will have to discuss our options with the teams.”
“We will have a meeting this week or next week at the latest to discuss our options,” he added.
As of now, there is still no update nor a tentative date when the new date for the opening of the conference will be.
And PVL has 12 teams on the line waiting to battle in a bubble format at the Inspire Sports Academy in Calamba, Laguna.
