Also manning the welfare of the athletes, coaching staff and officials of the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) and the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC), which sanctioned the event which has Eventcourt as its international organizer, is PNP Senior Superintendent Joel Napoleon Coronel of the Manila Police District.
