THE Premier Volleyball League (PVL) will implement a video challenge system for its upcoming Reinforced Conference, league president Ricky Palou confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.
“We have already ordered and paid for the video challenge,” said Palou during the Reinforced Conference press conference at the Discovery Suites in Pasig City.
Palou said they’re waiting for the equipment to arrive anytime from abroad, but dismissed the possibility of using it on opening day of the Reinforced Conference at the Sta. Rosa Sports Complex this Saturday.
The cameras are coming in from Italy and will be shipped Wednesday.
“It will most likely be a week or 10 days,” said Sports Vision marketing head Fred Fateh, referring to the time for the equipment to reach the country. “The equipment’s manufactured in different parts of the world but shipped from Italy.”
PLDT and United Auctioneers-Army, meanwhile, will open the action on Saturday at 2:30 p.m., while Akari makes its league debut against back-to-back bronze medalist Cignal at 5:30 p.m.
The matches will be played every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and aired on One Sports, One Sports+, Cignal Play and Smart Gigaplay.
