Volleyball is set to mark its return with the PSL beach volleyball tournament

The Philippine Superliga (PSL) will immediately buckle down to work after the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) gave the green light to hold the beach volleyball tournament in a sports bubble.

The bubble would set up in Subic, the same venue where the country held the beach volleyball tournament during the country’s staging of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.

PSL chairman Philip Ella Juico told Rappler that the league would start in-depth discussions on Monday, October 19, in order to salvage the season by the end of the year.

Juico added that the league would primarily discuss the number of teams which would join the competition. They would also be welcome non-PSL teams to the bubble.

Being a commercial league, the PSL needed the approval of the IATF on its proposals for both the indoor and beach volleyball tournaments.

IATF announced on Friday, October 16, that the beach volleyball sports bubble resumption was approved under the condition that it was operated in coordination with the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA).

Also, the IATF said the rules and regulations must comply with the Joint Administrative Order issued on July 27, 2020 by the Philippine Sports Commission, Department of Health and Games and Amusements Board.

The PBA has resumed the 2020 Philippine Cup in a bubble in Clark, Pampanga, while the Philippines Football League (PFL) is set to kick off on Sunday, October 25 in the PFF National Training Center in Carmona. – Rappler.com
