Philippine Army is out to duplicate its recent title conquest when the third conference of the Shakey’s V-League unfurls on Sunday at Filoil Flying V Arena.

Starring Jovelyn Gonzaga and Rachel Daquis, the defending champions face stiff competition against Cagayan, Meralco and PLDT, teams ready to boost their campaign with foreign players in the lineup.

Aside from the women’s tilt, the league will feature a separate men’s tournament with the same number of teams and a similar format.

“The popularity of men’s volleyball will increase that’s why we’re pushing for it,” said Ricky Palou of organizer Sports Vision during Tuesday’s Philippine Sportswriters Association forum at Shakey’s Malate.
