‘Pop stars’ at PSL today

Games Today
(Filoil Flying V Center)
3 p.m. – Opening Ceremonies
5 p.m. – Generika-Ayala vs Foton
7 p.m. – Cignal vs Petron

A dazzling performance by the “world’s greatest pop stars” highlights the opening salvo of the Philippine Superliga (PSL) All-Filipino Conference today at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan.

Another massive weekend crowd is expected to show up as divas impersonating pop stars like Lady Gaga and Beyonce strut their stuff with the country’s elite volleyball players in a spectacular display of showmanship, poise and talent never before seen on the court.

Show starts at 3 p.m. followed by the battle between unbeaten Generika-Ayala and Foton at 5 pm and heavyweights Cignal and Petron in the 7 pm featured battle of this prestigious club tourney bankrolled by Rebisco, Gold’s Gym and Belo with TV5 as official broadcast partner.

Tickets are free and games will be shown live on Aksyon TV and Hyper HD and will be livestreamed over at Sports5.ph.

Right after the showdown among divas, members of the national table tennis team and some of Ian Lariba’s classmates at De La Salle University will personally solicit financial support for the ailing Olympian.

Lariba, the first Filipino table tennis player to compete in the Olympics, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia – a deadly blood disease.

“We hope that this little contribution from the PSL will enable Ian overcome the biggest challenge in her life. We’re all praying and hoping for her speedy recovery,” said PSL chairman Philip Ella Juico, adding that half of the ticket sales in the league’s first two playdates will also be donated to Lariba’s medical fund.
