The PNVF, through the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC), secured the visa for the Thai coach, who mentored the Creamline Cool Smashers in the 2021 Premier Volleyball League Open conference that made its professional debut in the Ilocos Norte bubble.
The Cool Smashers fell to Chery Tiggo in three games of the best-of-three finals series as the latter took home the inaugural professional title.
The PNVF also managed to secure a visa for Brazilian coach Jorge Edson Souza de Brito, who will act as a consultant for the national team that will see action in the Asian Volleyball Confederation championships and the country’s campaign in the 2021 Southeast Asian Games. – Rappler.com
