THE Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas Inc. (LVPI) has bared its proposed calendar that will keep the men’s and women’s national squads busy in 2020.
After a historic silver-medal finish in the last 30th Southeast Asian Games, the Philippine men’s volleyball team will see action in the Asian Men’s Club Volleyball Championship from April 18 to 25 in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.
Also lined up for the men’s national team is the AVC Cup from August 22 to 29 in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.

The LVPI will have a technical meeting on January 15 to finalize the calendar of events.
A Unity Cup featuring Philippine Superliga (PSL) and Premier Volleyball League (PVL) teams is also part of the proposed schedule from November to December. But the federation declined to reveal more details.
