PVL SETTLES NOT TO PUSH THROUGH WITH REINFORCED SECOND CONFERENCE FOR 2021 SEASON
The Premiere Volleyball League (PVL), together with team representatives, came to a unanimous decision of postponing the supposed second PVL conference at the end of this year and taking time to rest.
Customarily, the PVL conducts three conferences each season, namely Open, Reinforced, and Collegiate Conferences.
However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Collegiate Conference became impossible to hold as face-to-face classes are yet to be allowed.
On the other hand, the Open Conference successfully ended last month under a bubble format in Bacarra, Ilocos Norte, but the Reinforced Conference was concurred by the 11 teams to be postponed.
In a text message, PVL commissioner Tonyboy Liao confirmed the said decision.
“We had a meeting last Friday with all the Club teams representatives and it was unanimously decided that we will just take a break this year so players can rest,” Liao shared.
Still, the PVL was hoping to corroborate the second professional conference by featuring Open Conference and import-flavored Reinforced Conference that are expected to begin sometime in February and October, respectively.
“It will be a new Professional Season with 2 Conferences. Open and hopefully Reinforced,” Liao said.
Meanwhile, PVL has 11 teams consisting of Chery Tiggo, Creamline, Petro Gazz, Choco Mucho, Sta. Lucia, PLDT, Black Mamba-Army, BaliPure, Perlas Spikers, Cignal, and F2 Logistics.
