In a friendly tune-up game hosted by the Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) ahead of Week 2 of the Volleyball Nations League, the Philippine women’s team will face Thailand on Saturday and Japan on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ogunsanya is coming off a strong first conference performance with Choco Mucho in the same tournament.
The invitations will serve as a preparation for all the teams involved, especially since Thailand and Japan will be seeing action in the Quezon City leg of the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) this June 14 to 19 at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Carlos and Ogunsanya and will join Alyssa Valdez, Aby Marano, and Mylene Paat, Dawn Macandili, Kat Tolentino, Kath Arado, Jema Galanza, Majoy Baron, Dell Palomata, Kyle Negrito, and Iris Tolenada.
