Chery Tiggo, Rebisco invited to join Asian Women’s Club Championship


Through its historic win in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference, Chery Tiggo has earned a ticket to the upcoming 2021 Asian Women’s Club Volleyball Championship on October 1 in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand. 

Chery Tiggo will be representing the Philippines along with the Rebisco squad bannered by members of the Philippine women’s national volleyball team pool.

“For the Asian Club Championship to be held in Nakhon Ratchasima from October 1 to 7, the teams invited are the national team and the champion of the PVL which is Chery Tiggo,” confirmed league commissioner Tonyboy Liao.

The inaugural professional champions of the PVL, however, still have not confirmed their participation in the annual club tournament hosted by the Asian Volleyball Confederation.

According to Liao, the Crossovers must confirm their participation before the September 10 deadline set by the Thailand Volleyball Association.

If ever Chery Tiggo chooses to skip the tournament, they will be replaced by PVL second placer Creamline in the meet. If Creamline decides to forgo the spot, next up will be Petro Gazz or Choco Mucho.

“Until now Chery Tiggo hasn’t confirmed their participation. If they won’t be available, then Creamline will be invited, then Petro Gazz and then the next ranked team,” said Liao.

“If Chery Tiggo would like to participate, they should inform PNVFI right away before the end of August because the deadline of submission of entries to Thailand Volleyball is on September 10.”

Liao also confirmed that national pool members Jaja Santiago, Dindin Santiago-Manabat, and Mylene Paat will be allowed to suit up for the Aaron Velez-coached squad in the inter-club tournament.

This will be the second time that Chery Tiggo will participate in the AVC Women’s Club Volleyball championship. Back in 2016 when they are still carrying the name Foton, the team finished at seventh place in the 12-team field that was hosted by the Philippines.

The men’s side, which will also represent Rebisco, will also compete in the tournament scheduled to take place from October 8-15 in Thailand.
