PSL team owners deny Iriga City’s appeal



Philippine Sports News - Tiebreaker Times PSL team owners deny Iriga City's appeal News PSL Volleyball  Iriga City Lady Oragons Grethcel Soltones 2017 PSL Season 2017 PSL Grand Prix

The team owners of the Philippine Superliga club teams, in an emergency meeting, unanimously voted to deny the appeal the Iriga City Lady Oragons for the reconsideration of Grethcel Soltones’ one-year ban and PHP 50,000 fine as penalties for playing in an unsanctioned match outside of the PSL, Tuesday morning.

The vote was 7-0, upholding the league’s decision to ban and fine Soltones, who should have been under contract with Team Iriga for one year.

Team Iriga, however, does not have a contract yet with Soltones, to the dismay of league officials, who have imposed a rule on all teams to sign their players to a minimum of one-year contract on a one-league policy, meaning players cannot play outside of the PSL while they are under contract with their respective teams.

Team Iriga could not vote during the deliberation.

Guest team Victoria Sports-University of Santo Tomas Golden Tigresses also could not vote.

Soltones will be required to pay the fine under league rules.
