GAB CHECKS PRACTICE FACILITIES FOR PVL TEAMS
Games and Amusement Board (GAB) chairman Baham Mitra and Sports Vision president Ricky Palou led the inspection of facilities where three of Premier Volleyball League (PVL) participating clubs plan to start training.
The inspection conducted in Ronac Center in Greenhills, San Juan on Tuesday was a step ahead for the league in their bid to return to action slated on April 10.
Teams such as Creamline, Perlas, and Choco Mucho are considering Ronac Center to roof their practices once official training in small groups gets green light from the GAB and the IATF.
GAB has oversight function over the PVL’s planned return to action after the pioneering volleyball league turned professional last year.
Under the new protocols imposed by the IATF, the league will also need clearance from the local government, in this case, San Juan before training will formally kickoff.
The PVL, which reached a deal with new broadcast partner Cignal, is eyeing to conduct their new season inside a bubble at the Inspire Sports Academy in Calamba, Laguna after the Holy Week with approximately 10 squads in the fold.
Joining Creamline, Perlas and Choco Mucho in the roster of participating clubs in the upcoming league in the bubble tournament are Petro Gazz, Balipure, new team Peak Form and transferees PLDT and Cignal from the Philippine Super Liga (PSL).
The PVL is looking forward to seeing the Army and Air Force to take action as guest teams to round out the 10-team field.
