For the first time since March 2020, the Premier Volleyball League will once again welcome fans to full capacity when it returns to the FilOil Flying V Center in San Juan City
MANILA, Philippines — Premier Volleyball League (PVL) fans will no longer have to wait outside Manila’s Paco Arena just to catch a glimpse of their favorite volleyball stars, as the league now welcomes live audiences to the FilOil Flying V Center in San Juan starting this Monday, March 28.
It’s the first time the professional league has allowed fans in since the pandemic began in March 2020.
While the decision to allow fans to return is final, the league is still finalizing health protocols that will be enforced inside the arena, which will serve as San Juan City’s vaccination center through Sunday. March 27.
What is certain is that fans will have to show proof of vaccination and always wear masks. Social distancing measures, however, will be removed altogether, according to league president Ricky Palou, meaning the league expects a full house of around 6,000 people inside the FilOil Arena.
A handful of blockbuster quarterfinal matches will greet fans as the Creamline Cool Smashers, with a double advantage, will already face the Chery Tiggo Crossovers in a rematch of the 2021 Open Conference Finals, while the Choco Mucho Flying Titans, also with a two-fold advantage, will meet the PLDT high-speed hitters.
Meanwhile, the F2 Cargo Movers, after losing to Choco Mucho, will need to defeat the Petro Gazz Angels twice to advance, while the Cignal HD Spikers look to maintain their invincibility against the winless BaliPure Water Defenders. – Rappler.com
