“We regret to inform everyone that with the ongoing pandemic, the Perlas management has decided to take a leave of absence in the upcoming PVL tournament,” the club announced Tuesday.

“We wish the tournament well and we continue to support the growth of Philippine volleyball.”

Perlas finished ninth in the Open Conference last August, which marked the league’s first tournament as a professional.

The PVL is targeting a February opening for its 2022 season, which will be held in a bubble set-up anew.
