The PSL looks to continue to bring in top foreign talent to help in the development of local volleyball players.

THE Philippine Superliga looks to help unite volleyball stakeholders in the country and spearhead the deployment of more teams to various tournaments abroad next year.

PSL president Ramon Suzara said the league looks to help the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. in enhancing the development and progress of the sport and also provide more opportunities to coaches, players, game officials and media to improve.

"Our country sent two representatives to the inaugural AVC Press Seminar in Bangkok two weeks ago," said Suzara, who is setting the league direction for next year together with PSL chairman Philip Ella Juico.

"It was a major boost to the development of volleyball in the country and we are looking forward to conducting the AVC Press Seminar here in Manila next year."

The PSL this year introduced the video challenge system, same as the ones used in tournaments in other countries.

The PSL is the first club league in Asia to use the P3-million equipment that uses 25 high-definition cameras. 

"We will pick up where we left off," said Suzara, also the chairman of development and marketing committee chairman of the Asian Volleyball Confederation.

"We will continue to innovate in terms of uniforms, officiating and branding to further increase the level of volleyball in the country."

“Making the PSL a family sport entertainent remains our top priority," he said.

“We will make sure to come up with a more balanced field, unpredictable games, high-caliber players and intense action next year. It's going to be a blast."
