The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease (IATF) gave the go-signal for the Philippine Super Liga to hold a beach volleyball tournament under a ‘sports bubble concept’.
“Pinapayagan na rin subject to conditions ang beach volleyball tournament ng Philippine Super Liga sa ilalim ng sports bubble concept,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced on Friday, October 16, during the Laging Handa press briefing.
“Ibig sabihin, mananatili sila doon sa lugar kung saan sila ay magkakaroon ng kanilang volleyball tournament,” the Palace official explained.
The Philippine Super Liga cancelled its Grand Prix conference in March after Luzon was placed under enhanced community quarantine due to the 2019 Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
In recent weeks, the IATF gave the green light for various sports leagues, including the Philippine Football League and the Philippine Basketball Association, to hold a tournament bubble and resume games.
