UAAP: New volleyball sked to give men’s game better exposure


Posted at Jan 22 2020 10:27 PM

For the UAAP Season 82 volleyball tournament, the league and ABS-CBN S+A will adopt a new program format on game day.

Unlike in previous seasons, which saw the men's games played in the morning while the women's contests were in the afternoon, the gender divisions will be featured alternately.

The men's games will be played at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., while the women's games are penciled for 11 am and 3 pm. 

"With the success of the men's Volleyball team in the last SEA Games, it is about time that we put men's Volleyball side by side with the women's volleyball," league president Emmanuel Fernandez said.

The men's national team, a squad that featured several UAAP products, finished runner-up in the 30th Southeast Asian Games, the country's first medal in the sport since 2005.
