Marano, De Guzman captain Rebisco PH as Tolenada skippers Choco Mucho in AVC Club


Three teams – two women’s and one men’s – will represent the country in the Asian Club Volleyball Championship in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand. 

The women’s squads Rebisco and Choco Mucho and the men’s team Rebisco were presented to the Philippine National Volleyball Federation’s (PNVF) board during its sixth virtual board meeting on Tuesday afternoon.

PNVF President Ramon “Tats” Suzara announced the composition of the teams after consultation with Brazilian consultant-coach Jorge Edson Souza de Brito and national team coaches Odjie Mamon (women) and Dante Alinsunurin (men); and recommended by National Team Commission chairman Tonyboy Liao.

The PNVF board unanimously approved the teams’ composition was unanimously approved.

The Asian Club Championships for men and women, according to Suzara, are the first foreign sortie for the members of the national volleyball teams.

“With these club championships, we are putting in harness the national team program aimed at three major international competitions in 2022,” Suzara said. “These are the Asian Games in Huangzhou, Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam, and the Asian Senior Women’s Championship that we are hosting in May next year.”

Suzara, Liao, PNVF Secretary-General Don Caringal, and Deputy Secretary-General for International Affairs Ricky Palou have been monitoring the teams’ semi-bubble training at the Aquamarine Gym in Lipa City.

The women’s teams are leaving for Nakhon Ratchasima, host of the 2007 SEA Games, on September 27 in time for the tournament set from October 1 to 7. The men’s squads, on the other hand, are flying to Thailand on October 4 for their own tournament scheduled from October 8 to 15.
