LVPI hopes to see Valdez, other PVL stars suit up in Asean Grand Prix 2nd leg

/ 04:14 PM September 26, 2019

MANILA, Philippines–Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas is hoping national team players including Alyssa Valdez can see action in the second leg of the Asean Grand Prix which the country is hosting on Oct. 4-6.

Valdez, Jia Morado and Maddie Madayag are main draws of the Premier Volleyball League which has scheduled games in Iloilo on Oct. 5.

Valdez and Morado play for Creamline which will clash with Madayag’s Choco Mucho on that day. PetroGazz and PacificTown-Army collide on the day.


PacificTown-Army’s Jovelyn Gonzaga is also included in the national squad although she is expected to suit up for the Philippine team in the four-nation meet.

She also plays for Cignal HD in Philippine Superliga which will halt its ongoing Invitational Conference in the weekend of the Asean GP.

The Philippines finished third place in the first leg recently held in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

“Our hope is to have a complete team in the second leg because that would be the last tournament these players get to play as a team before the SEA Games (Southeast Asian Games),” said LVPI president Joey Romasanta.

The LVPI has also sought the permission of Rebisco, owners of Creamline and Choco Mucho teams, to allow at least Morado and Madayag.

The two were able to compete in the first leg, while Valdez was recuperating from right ankle sprain she suffered just before the team left for Thailand.
