UAAP to implement video challenge system for Season 82 volleyball
The UAAP is introducing the video challenge system to Season 82 men’s and women’s volleyball tournaments kicking off this weekend.
The league is taking inspiration from the 2019 Southeast Asian Games hosted by the Philippines, where the same technology was implemented, in an effort to bolster the quality of officiating during the games.
“During the SEA Games we also saw the challenges that were implemented, we will also implement the challenge system during this year,” said UAAP president Fernandez on Tuesday in a press conference.
Details of the video challenge system are still being finalized according to UAAP volleyball control committee president Noreen Go, but it will be ready for implementation for the opening on Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena.
“We will pattern the challenge system after the SEA Games,” said Go.
We’re still finalizing all the details and we will release a memorandum to all schools, all the people involved and the media as well. We want to orient them with the correct rules and the guidelines.”
