MANILA, Philippines—The Premier Volleyball League could play two conferences in its inaugural professional season if it gets the green light from the government.

Ricky Palou, Sports Vision Management Management Group President, said in the recent Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum that the league is hoping it could stage both the Open and Reinforced Conference this season.

SVMG is the sports group that organizes the PVL.

“If we have time to have another bubble tournament or things open up towards the end of the year, we’d like to have another tournament,” said Palou.

The PVL, before the pandemic, usually held the Open, Reinforced, and Collegiate Conferences but holding the scholastic tournament is out of the question.

With the Open Conference already set, Palou hopes that the Reinforced Conference will be staged later in the year but it remains unsure whether foreign players can enter the country.

It will also constitute another bubble for it to be played.

“We’re still not sure if we will be allowed to have imports into the country,” said Palou. “We’d like to have two conferences this year, we’d like to have one of them to be reinforced, but again, subject to the authorities to allow imports to come in, or whether the imports themselves will want to come in.”

“Those are the things we’re looking at right now. But we’d like to have two conferences this year.”
