Philippine coach Odjie Mamon and consultant Jorge Edson Souza de Brito decided to move Dy and Baron to Rebisco after four of the team’s players were mandated to complete additional local health and safety protocols.

Ramon “Tats” Suzara, president of the Philippine National Volleyball Federation, said the four players’ swab tests “weren’t immediately cleared” as the results were brought to Bangkok, where the main lab of the Thai Department of Disease Control is located.

The AVC has also approved the players’ transfer.

Suzara said that a team cannot have just eight players for the tournament as it will be too grueling for such a small roster.

“You cannot have only eight players on a team which is bound to play so many number of matches,” said Suzara. “It’s a sound decision to balance the team—besides, all of the athletes in Thailand are members of the national team.”

The two Philippine teams arrived in Bangkok around midnight on Tuesday and traveled by bus 400 kilometers north of the Thai capital to the Nakhon Ratchasima.
