Beach Volleyball

PSL Challenge Cup moved to Feb 2021

There will be no pro volleyball this year. 

The Philippine Superliga has announced that its Beach Volleyball Challenge Cup will no longer push through.

The tournament was supposed to take place from November 28 to 30 in Subic.

According to league chairman Popoy Juico, the current climate — with both the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the effects of super typhoon Rolly — made the league decide to cancel the event.

“After many hours of deliberation that took into account several weather disturbances occurring in rapid and disastrous succession, the safety of all athletes exposed to outdoor conditions and other participants and the effectivity of frontliners assigned to monitor both the Challenge Cup and to render essential public services during a calamity, it is with sadness that the PSL has decided to reschedule the Invitational Beach Volleyball Challenge Cup.”

Sixteen teams were supposed to take part in the tournament.

Petron XCS are the defending champions for the event.

The league played five games in the Grand Prix early this year, but had to shut it down due to the pandemic.
