ALL 12 Premier Volleyball League clubs have agreed to move the start of the Open Conference to the second quarter of 2021.
After a virtual meeting with team owners, PVL president Ricky Palou, it was deemed that the teams needed more time to train heading into the tournament.
The trainings of the teams have stopped due to the NCR-plus bubble being put into Enhanced Community Quarantine during the first two weeks of April before shifting to modified ECQ from April 12-30.
“We have agreed to move the PVL opening to either last week of June or the first week of July,” said Palou.
“We decided to do this to give ample time for the teams to train as a team as the training of the teams was disrupted when the government agencies agreed to place NCR, Laguna, Rizal, Cavite, and Bulacan under ECQ and now MECQ,” he added.
Palou also bared that the league is also looking at other provinces like Subic as host of the tournament in case Laguna is still under MECQ by then.
The Open Conference was supposed to begin on the last week of May, but the Games and Amusements Board have suspended batch trainings last March 29, making impossible for the clubs to prepare for the tournament.Publication Source : People's Tonight
