PNVF Champions League to push through this November

Philippine National Volleyball Federation president Tats Suzara bared more details about the Champions League on Tuesday, a part of his 10-point strategy to bring Philippine volleyball to a higher level.

During Tuesday’s Philippine Sportswriters Association forum, the amiable executive revealed the target dates for both women’s and men’s first-ever Champions League.

The women will kick things off on November 9 to 13, while the men will follow suit on the 20th to the 26th. Prospective hosts are Ilocos Norte, Subic, or Pampanga.

“The objective of the Champions League is to bring regional teams to this event,” said Suzara in the session powered by Smart and Upstream Media as its official webcast partner.

“This will be the first time that a league will really cater not only Metro Manila but will cater to other provinces,” he added in the weekly forum presented by San Miguel Corporation (SMC), MILO, Amelie Hotel, Braska Restaurant, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR).

Suzara also said that the tournament will be short but the federation expects it to be longer come 2022.

He also revealed how many teams will compose the playing field for the men’s and women’s side.

“In the women’s I think we have nine teams now but we will limit it only to eight we will have a meeting tonight with the teams.

“Sa men’s naman, there will be six to eight teams that will participate. Hindi lang Metro Manila ito,” the federation’s top honcho said.

Teams from Negros, Davao, Zamboanga, Baguio, and Iligan are expected to join the tournament.
