THE Premier Volleyball League has already aligned with the national team calendar, as the now professional league is now focusing of opening its 2022 season in February.

In a recent online meeting with the 11 clubs, the PVL has decided to no longer hold the second conference which was originally plotted for a late October opening.

Instead, the PVL will set in motion its Open Conference in February and will last until April.

The national team window will begin the following month and will end until September, which will serve as an opportunity for the PVL players in the pool to play in international competitions.

The second tournament, which if public health conditions permit will be a Reinforced Conference, is set for an October 2022 opening.

Several PVL clubs led by newly-minted Open Conference champion Chery Tiggo were invited to play in the PNVF Champions League, which will make its debut on Nov. 13.

The PVL players who are in the national pool are currently in the Lipa City bubble training for the Asian Women’s Club Volleyball Championship set on Oct. 1-7 at Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.
