FIVB to send delegation, resolve LVPI-PVF dispute

Dispute regarding the recognized governing body for volleyball in the country has caused quite a stir online for the past several weeks. And Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) has decided to set things straight.

In a letter from FIVB General Director Fabio Azevedo addressed to Philippine Volleyball Federation (PVF) President Edgar Cantada dated January 13, 2020, FIVB has clarified that Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas Inc. is the “only duly recognized sports association for volleyball in the Philippines”.

On the other hand, PVF remains suspended by FIVB since 2015, when LVPI received recognition from the international federation with the help of Philippine Olympic Committee’s (POC) endorsement.

Still, PVF remains affiliated with FIVB, but it “has lost all of its rights” — which include sending a national team to Asian Volleyball Confederation-sanctioned tournaments, as reiterated by AVC general manager Rueangsak Siriphol.

Meanwhile, LVPI has the rights granted to provisional members under the regulations of the international governing body, as per Azevedo.

Now to resolve the long-simmering feud between the two concerned federations, FIVB disclosed that it “intends to send its delegation to meet with relevant stakeholders in the Philippines in February 2020”.
