PHILIPS Gold has pulled out of the Philippine Super Liga and intends to jump to a rival league, sources told SPIN.ph on Friday.

A source confirmed that Philips Gold has informed the three-year-old club league that it no longer intends to join the PSL All-Filipino Conference set in May.

Plans are also afoot to join the pioneering Shakey's V-League, the source added.

Representatives from Philips Gold still attended the meeting among PSL team owners on Thursday but made no mention about any plans to move out.

The news only reached league officials in a succeeding text message, the source added.

The PSL All-Filipino Conference and V-League Open Conference will be both held in May, shortly after the end of the UAAP Season 78 volleyball tournament.

Philips Gold is expected to bring its core, led by Michele Gumabao, Myla Pablo, Ria Meneses, Rose Vargas and Melissa Gohing, to the V-League.

Sought for comment, PSL president Tats Suzara declined to give any statements.
