MANILA, Philippines — F2 Logistics management has decided to end its operations of the Cargo Movers team in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL).

Amid the rumors surrounding the Cargo Movers for the past weeks, F2 Logistics announced Wednesday that it is disbanding the team and closing a chapter in the professional volleyball scene as the company focuses on its grassroots programs.

“As we shift our focus to the grassroots and put to a halt the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers, we thank our ever-loyal supporters that have been with the team through the victories and the losses,” the team wrote.

FEATURED STORIES

F2 Logistics entered the volleyball scene seven years ago in the defunct Philippine Superliga (PSL) and won five championships until 2019.

The Cargo Movers, who also won the inaugural Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) Champions League, transferred to the PVL in 2021 but skipped the bubble due to several injuries.

The team also skipped last year’s Invitationals and only played five conferences in the PVL with the bronze medal in the first All-Filipino Conference as its best finish in the league under rookie coach Regine Diego.

“We extend our sincerest appreciation to the Premier Volleyball League and the Philippine Superliga — for providing a platform that allowed us to showcase the talent and dedication of our athletes. These leagues have been instrumental in fostering the growth of volleyball in the Philippines, and we are truly grateful for the support and camaraderie we have experienced,” read F2’s statement.

“We have also supported the Philippine national team throughout our journey, allowing our key players to represent the country while playing the sport they love most. We have even bannered the Philippines in the 2016 FIVB Women’s Club World Championship held here in the country, going up against internationally renowned powerhouse teams and players.”

“However, time has not been good to us. A number of injuries to our players forced us to take slower steps, prioritizing health over victories in the past few years. We give our utmost thanks to the coaching staff who have fought and tried to make this team stronger. We would most like to thank Coach Ramil, for continuously heading the team.”

F2 Logistics promises to continue supporting the reigning UAAP champions La Salle Lady Spikers and University of Perpetual Help in the NCAA as well as the grassroots program nationwide.

“Your unwavering support has meant the world to us, and we hope to carry the spirit of the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers with us in our future endeavors,” the team said.

Several star players will have to find their new homes for the next PVL season as the league will be down to 11 teams.
