Atty. Ty retires from active management of Pocari Sweat

After four years of managing Federated Distributors Incorporated-backed teams in both the Philippine Superliga and the Premier Volleyball League, team manager Atty. Eric Anthony Ty has decided to retire from active management of the Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors, the company announced Friday night.

“We are very pleased with the results of our investment into Anthony’s volleyball program,” FDI executive director Ronald Tieng said in a statement. “We made history in securing an unprecedented third straight championship in the semi-pro leagues. While his colorful personality and bombastic approach to team management has been very effective, the constant and continuous grind of daily team management has been taking a toll on Anthony’s physical well-being.

“He clearly needs a break given his non-stop work for nearly four years, it’s time we reward him with a well-deserved sabbatical,” Tieng furthered.

Under Ty’s vision, FDI entered its first foray into volleyball with the Mane ‘N Tail Lady Stallions back in the 2014 season of the PSL. PSL-Awarding-Philips-Gold-2163 Atty.

The conglomerate then decided to move to the then-Shakey’s Volleyball League under the Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors umbrella, winning the 2016 Open Conference crown in its debut and following it up with the Reinforced Conference championship. They were able to repeat as Reinforced Conference champions last Thursday.

And Ty credits this to the all-out support of the Tieng family in this endeavor.

“I have been blessed to have the categorical support of the Tieng Family in developing our volleyball program,” Ty said. “It has been an honor and a privilege to have worked with a fantastic group of players such as Myla [Pablo], Mel [Gohing], and the rest of my beloved daughters in uniform.

“I look forward to simply attending the games as a simple fan.”

Ty will still help the soon-to-be-named replacement in identifying and recruiting new talent for the program.
