Following yesterday’s exhibition match between the ladies’ volleyball teams of Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) and Perlas-BanKo at STI-West Negros University, lead organizer Carmela Arcolas-Gamboa lauded the popularity of the sport in Bacolod City.
“Bacolod was crazy over the games and has a strong following in volleyball,” she said.
According to Gamboa, there were so many ticket requests made before tickets were even printed.
The venue, which could accommodate 3,000 spectators, was filled for both the main event and the preliminary games, including Team Greg Gasataya versus Talisay Gwapo, Siquijor against Team Pontevedra, and I-Mart facing Toy Trucks./WDJ
