MANILA, Philippines — The Premier Volleyball League will ride the momentum of its successful staging of the Open Conference early this year when it holds the PVL Invitational beginning July 9 at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

“We hope to sustain the momentum we gained in the Open Conference,” said PVL president Ricky Palou during yesterday’s face-to-face Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum at the Century Park Manila.

The country’s only professional volleyball league drew a record crowd attendance in the playoff stage of the Open Conference. The highest attendance in its history came in Game 2 of the semifinal showdown between sibling rivals Creamline and Choco Mucho at the MOA Arena where 16,687 fans graced the epic duel. It’s the same reason the league is bringing the Creamline-Choco Mucho elimination round game back to the MOA Arena on July 23 as well as the rest of its semifinals and finals games.

“We’ve had problems last conference that’s why we’re bringing the PVL to bigger venues during its crucial games,” said PVL commissioner Tonyboy Liao.
