MANILA, Philippines—The Perlas Spikers are finally cleared to play in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference after their season opener was postponed due to health protocols.

All members of the Perlas delegation tested negative on Wednesday and the team will play in its first match come Sunday.

“The results came out already a while ago, they’re all negative,” said PVL Commissioner Tonyboy Liao. “They will start playing this Sunday.”

Perlas was originally scheduled to play Cignal last Saturday but all of its games were put on hold after a member of the team’s non-playing staff tested positive for COVID-19.

The team was then put into quarantine.

The league is now working on how to fit Perlas’ matches into the schedule.

“We were told, it just a delay not a denial. Thank you to everyone who has whispered a prayer, who has sent encouraging messages, and who has rallied behind us!” wrote Perlas on social media. “Above all, thank you dear God! All glory to You!”

“Your Perlas Spikers now have a chance to fight!”
