AVC approves Clark hosting of Asian Women’s Championship

The Asian Volleyball Confederation has given the green light for the country’s hosting of the 21st Asian Senior Women’s Championship.

The tournament will be held from August 29 to September 5 in Clark and in Subic.

“The Philippines, which hosted the Asian Senior Women’s Championship twice in 1997 and 2017, received the AVC’s green light to organize the top-tier championship for the third time,” read the AVC’s statement.

Jiangmen was supposed to host the event but China pulled out from the responsibility.

With the hosting, the Philippines will automatically qualify for the continental meet and will get to pick which group it will be slotted in.

Already qualified for the Asian Championship are China, Japan, Thailand, South Korea, Kazakhstan, Chinese-Taipei, Iran, Indonesia, Australia, India, and Hong Kong. AVC is targeting 16 nations for the tournament, which serves as a qualifier for the 2022 FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship.

The Philippine National Volleyball Federation earlier said that the AUF Sports & Cultural Center will be the main venue for the games while either the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center or the Subic Bay Gym will serve as the secondary stadium.

All teams will be hosted in Quest Hotel.

“It will be a bubble championship, no spectators. Parang sa FIBA Asia lang,” said PNVF president Tats Suzara.

On the other hand, the Asian Senior Men’s Volleyball Championship will be hosted in Japan. The tournament will take place from September 12-19 in Chiba.

The Philippine Men’s National Volleyball Team is looking to compete there as they are the second-best team during the 30th Southeast Asian Games.
