2021 AVC Women's Championship

Souza de Brito arrives, set to join women’s team in Batangas

Jorge Edson Souza de Brito arrived late Wednesday as he prepares to join the national women’s team training bubble for the 21st Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship. 

Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) president Ramon “Tats” Suzara said that Souza de Brito will enter the bubble on August 1 after completing his quarantine on July 31.

It took some time for Souza de Brito to secure a Philippine visa amid Covid-19 protocol issues concerning the entry of foreigners to the country.

Souza de Brito is looking forward to working hand-in-hand with national women’s team coach Odjie Mamon for two years upon his arrival.

He will help the Philippines’ build up for the eight-team continental championship, which the country is hosting on August 29. The hosts were drawn in Pool A with Kazakhstan, Chinese-Taipei, and Uzbekistan.

Majority of the 16-member national women’s team have recently ended camp in the Ilocos Norte training bubble, which began last July 1.

The women’s team will resume training for the Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship in Batangas on Friday.
