Beach Volleyball

PSL’s beach volley tourney gets go-signal from IATF

The Philippine Superliga’s proposal to hold a beach volleyball tournament in Subic has been approved by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

“Pinapayagan na rin po ang beach volleyball tournament ng Philippine Superliga sa ilalim ng sports bubble concept,” said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.

The Challenge Cup will take place from November 27 to 29 at the Subic Tennis Court — the same venue where the 30th Southeast Asian Games was held.

“I think it will be much, much easier from an organization standpoint, and Subic has been very, very helpful. They provided us with all of their regulations, with their protocol,”
said PSL President Ian Laurel.

It will be held inside a bubble.

Under the guidelines, the league should work closely with the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, the local COVID-19 Task Force, and the local Department of Health Center for Health Development for the necessary trainings in contact tracing, the designation of a health officer, and other rules.

Moreover, despite being a semi-pro league, the PSL must still comply with the JAO Group consisting of the Games and Amusements Board, DOH, and Philippine Sports Commission.

With this development, all future requests for the conduct of sporting events by any entity shall be addressed to the Regional Task Force for COVID-19 of the locality where such activity is proposed to be conducted.

The league is eyeing 16 teams to join the four-day meet. Moreover, the PSL opened its doors for PVL and BVR teams to join.
