PVL eyes new opening date

WITH the recent extension of the coronavirus lockdown, the Premier Volleyball League is now mulling to move its season-opening Open Conference to a later date.

Last month, the PVL was plotting to open its first season as a professional league in late May until the recent COVID-19 surge has threw a wrench to its plans.

We’ll probably have to move the opening,” PVL president Ricky Palou told People’s Tonight yesterday afternoon.

We will meet the team owners/managers this week or next week at the latest,” he added.

The PVL clubs were forced to call off its small groups training after Metro Manila and its nearby provinces were placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine last March 29 and the strict lockdown recently was extended to another week.

Currently, the players are back doing online workouts.

The PVL, which saw its 2020 season scrapped due to the public health crisis, will be played in a tightly-secured bubble with 12 teams.
