Reasons why the PVL is exciting to watch

The Premier Volleyball League (PVL) starts a new season this 2018 with the Reinforced Conference this coming Sunday.

Here are the reasons why you should watch the PVL:


Closer to Home. The Premier Volleyball League is going on tour to give everyone a chance to see their favorite players. Tuguegarao and Bulacan are confirmed to be hosts of the tour.

Volleyball Masterminds. Get to see some of the former collegiate coaches like Nes Pamilar, Roger Gorayeb, and Jerry Yee battle it out on the sidelines. Will their tactics remain the same in the next level of volleyball competition?

The Angels are in town. Paneng Mercado will be leading a host of De La Salle and Benilde alumnae to the PVL battlefield. Chie Saet and Djanel Cheng will be alternating as setters.

Oragons cross the line. After an 8th place finished in Philippine SuperLiga, Iriga City teams up with the Philippine Navy to try their luck in the League. Coach Edgardo Rusit will be banking on former NCAA players to finish, at least, in the middle of the pack.

Waray Chiefs. Tacloban will be parading the championship core of Arellano University this conference. Coach Nes Pamilar will be calling the shots in their debut season.

Hitters to Flyers. After a two-year hiatus, the team formerly known as PLDT joins the PVL under the PayMaya name. Coach Roger Gorayeb has Jasmine Nabor, Lizlee Pantone, Gretchel Soltones, and Aiko Urdas at his disposal.

Back for a bigger bite. The BaliPure-NU squad is looking to improve on their bridesmaid finish in the last Reinforce conference. With one of the younger squads in the tourney, Coach Babes Castillo is still looking for the best imports to compliment the team.

Third time’s a charm. Two conferences and two 5th place finishes after, the Perlas Spikers are itching to break into the Final Four. Veterans Sue Roces and Sasa Devanadera together with Jem Ferrer, Ella de Jesus, and Amanda Villanueva make up arguably one of the better teams in the league.

Return to domination. Even with three titles under their name, Pocari Sweat has teamed up with Air Force to avenge their bridesmaid finish in Open Conference. Myla Pablo will once again spearhead the attack with Wendy Semana, Elaine Kasilag, Jeanette Panaga, and Iari Yongco supporting her.

Rivals turned teammates. You never thought it would happen on a club level, but Alyssa Valdez and Jia Morado will be teaming up with Michele Gumabao and Melissa Gohing for the Creamline Cool Smashers. With Coach Tai Bundit at the helm, a Finals appearance is the bare minimum for this team.

Aerial Battle. When you think of Filipina open hitters, two names come to mind – Alyssa Valdez and Myla Pablo. While Valdez is the more decorated of the two attackers in terms of individual awards, Pablo has been the more successful player in the PVL with three titles under her belt.

Which team will you be rooting for this conference?
