Cayetano is honorary chair

Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano was chosen as the honorary chairman when the Philippine Superliga (PSL) organizes the FIVB World Women’s Club Championship from Oct. 18 to 23.

In a meeting with PSL chairman Philip Ella Juico and PSL president Ramon “Tats” Suzara last Wednesday, Cayetano formally accepted the position and threw his all-out support behind the prestigious tournament that will feature eight of the best club teams in the world.

Cayetano said he will request incoming President Rodrigo Duterte to issue an executive order that will mobilize vital government agencies like the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC), Department of Tourism, Department of Health, Philippine National Police, Metro Manila Development Authority and Bureau of Immigration during the week-long volleyball festival.

He added that he will also request President-elect Duterte to serve as guest of honor and personally welcome the players, coaches and officials of club teams from Brazil, Thailand and Italy.

“This is such a prestigious event. The world will be watching as we open our doors to eight of the world’s best club teams,” said Cayetano, a volleyball enthusiast whose sister in-law, Fille, saw action for Petron last year.

Aside from Juico and Suzara, also welcoming Cayetano to the local organizing committee are Amb. Alfredo Yao as well as Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI) president Joey Romasanta.

A distinguished businessman, Yao has been tapped as vice-chairman while Romasanta sits as member of the powerful executive committee. Juico remains as the chairman while Suzara is the director general and FIVB executive committee member Gustav Jacobi is the president of the executive board.
