    Chery Tiggo has begged off from taking part in the 2021 AVC Asian Women's Club Volleyball Championship in Nakhon Ratchasima from October 1 to 7 due to injuries to key players and a spike of Covid-19 cases in Thailand.

    Crossovers team manager Ronwald Dimaculangan bared on Saturday that injuries sustained by their players from their run to the title in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Open Conference in Ilocos Norte weighed in the decision.

    The team is also concerned with the pandemic situation in Thailand, he added.

    “We have injured players who need immediate medical attention aside from the high Covid cases in Thailand,” Dimaculangan said.

      PVL Conference and Finals MVP Jaja Santiago will also fly to Japan in the first week of September to play as an import of Ageo Medics in Japan V.League.
