MANILA, Philippines — Presidential son William Vincent “Vinny” Araneta Marcos exuded pride and confidence as he led the ceremonial launch of the country’s first-time solo hosting of the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship 2025 on Tuesday night at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

“We’re proud and confident of hosting the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship 2025,” said the 27-year-old youngest son of President Marcos in the ceremony held during the break between the opening-day matches of the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) Men’s Week 3 at the Pasay City arena.

Marcos chairs the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of the world championship set September 12 to 28 both at the MOA Arena and the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Volleyball World CEO Finn Taylor formally turned over the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship 2025 ceremonial ball to Marcos and to LOC co-chairs Senators Alan Peter Cayetano and Pia Cayetano, Tourism Secretary Christina Garcia Frasco, Philippine Olympic Committee president Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino and Philippine Sports Commission chairman Richard Bachmann.
