    Nine (9) teams will compete in the league's second pro season, with games from Sunday to Friday until the elimination round ends on March 24. The quarterfinals will start on March 27.

    Game time at 3PM and 6PM.

    Official teams include the following:
    • BaliPure Purest Water Defenders
    • Black Mamba Army Lady Troopers
    • Chery Tiggo 7 Pro Crossovers
    • Choco Mucho Flying Titans
    • Cignal HD Spikers
    • Creamline Cool Smashers
    • F2 Logistics Cargo Movers
    • Petro Gazz Angels
    • PLDT High Speed Hitters

    With the compact schedule, the format of the tournament will have a pool play setup - a first for the league -to make way for the training of the national team gearing up for various international competitions, including the SEA Games in Vietnam in May.

    Chery Tiggo, which foiled Creamline to crown itself the country's first pro volley champion in a bubble set up last year, sets out for its title defense on a team built around sisters Jaja Santiago and Dindin Santiago-Manabat with former UST stalwart EJ Laure boosting the squad's frontline threat.

    Creamline has also kept its star-studded roster intact with Alyssa Valdez, Jia Morado, and Jema Galanza eager to reclaim their crown, and the likes of Petro Gazz, Choco Mucho, Philippine Army, PLDT Home Fibr, BaliPure, and Cignal HD all shoring up their respective rosters for a crack at the crown.

    But the focus will be on F2 Logistics, now ready to bring its winning tradition to the country's first-ever pro league after withdrawing at the last minute the first time out due to injuries and a disrupted training period caused by the pandemic.

    The Cargo Movers, bannered by Major Baron, Kianny Dy, and Aby Maraño, have underscored their readiness by ruling the PNVF Champions League late last year via sweep.

    F2 Logistics was drawn to Chery Tiggo, Choco Mucho, Army, and Cignal in Pool A while Creamline heads Pool B that includes Petro Gazz, PLDT, and BaliPure. Groupings were drawn in a serpent-type format based on the final ranking of the previous Open Conference in Ilocos Norte last August.

    The top four in Pool A will join the Pool B squads in the knockout quarterfinals with the Nos. 1 and 2 teams gaining twice-to-beat incentives.

    PVL Schedule

    F2 Logistics Cargo Movers will face Black Mamba Army in the opening game on March 16 at 3 pm. Chery Tiggo Crossovers will start their title defense against the Cignal HD Spikers at 6 pm.

    The double-header on Thursday, March 17 includes match between Petro Gazz Angels and BaliPure Water Defenders at 3 pm while Creamline Cool Smashers will play against PLDT High Speed Hitters at 6pm.

    Choco Mucho Flying Titans and Black Mamba will battle on Friday, March 18 at 3 pm. The much-awaited duel between F2 and Chery Tiggo was booked at 6 pm.

    Though the alert levels have been downgraded, Palou said they still have to hold the games behind closed doors since the Paco Arena could only accommodate a small crowd.

    Palou said they had wanted to hold the games at the PVL's home at the San Juan Arena but couldn't since it is still being used as a vaccine center.

    Next PVL Conference

    Palou added that they looking to have three conferences in the season with the last in October to be played over two months where each team will be allowed to tap two imports to further stir up play and generate excitement under the Reinforced format.

    The second conference will be the Invitational.
