Super Liga volleyfest to be launched

By MST Sports | Jun. 28, 2013 at 12:01am
A new club league designed for volleyball stars who have recently finished their collegiate tours of duty comes to the fore to complement the existing volleyball programs.

Enter the Philippine Super Liga Invitationals, which unwraps on July 7 at the Philsports Arena.

SportsCore, a sports event and management group founded by several of the country’s seasoned sports events managers and organizers on whose credit includes the organization of the coming Fourth Asian Beach Games in Phuket, Thailand next year, is putting up the league in partnership with Solar Sports, the country’s top sports entertainment provider.

The sport of volleyball has gained a headway in recent years with the successful programs by the University Athletic Association of the Philippines, the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the other leagues combining the premier collegiate leagues’ stars, but SportsCore saw the need for a club destination for the athletes, who have finished their collegiate playing years.

“SportsCore will try to raise the level of competition in the sport with the Philippine Super Liga, the very first club volleyball league in the Philippines,” said Ian Laurel, PSL Invitational Commissioner and Score Vice President. “We hope the PSL will be the next venue that allows players to develop high-level skills in a local setting that conforms to the international standards of the sport. The PSL should be a league that puts premium for the advancement of a volleyball player to pursue the sport after college.”

Laurel also noted that there has been a huge decline in high-level volleyball competitions in the last 10 years, proof of which is the absence of national teams available for international competitions despite the flourishing commercial and school-based volleyball leagues, which have gained huge followings in the past decade or so.

“Volleyball is the most watched event in the Olympics. It is one of the most popular sports in the world. The Philippines must pounce on the advances gained by the sport and make itself a powerhouse at least in the region,” Laurel said.

Other than TV partner Solar Sports, the PSL has received valuable technical backing and support from the Philippine Sports Commission, the San Juan Arena,  Healthway Medical, LGR outfitter, Lenovo, Vibram Five Fingers, Pagcor, Mikasa.

The league is sanctioned by the Philippine Volleyball Federation.
