MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines can now host the 21st Asian Seniors Women’s Volleyball Championship, Malacañang announced Friday.

This is after the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) approved the request of the Philippine National Volleyball Federation to host the tournament, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said.

However, this is subject to strict compliance with health and safety protocols provided under the guidelines of the Philippine Sports Commission.

Roque also announced that the IATF also allowed the Philippine Basketball Association to hold its much-delayed 46th season, also subject to strict health regulations against the spread of COVID-19.
