SAVE PHILIPPINE VOLLEYBALL FEDERATION
FIVB replaced Philippine Volleyball Federation (PVF) with a new federation without due process. PVF was never given the chance to be heard and was unceremoniously removed by FIVB as a member. PVF was never given the chance by FIVB to present its side and was completely ignored despite being a member in good standing for 64 years. FIVB, sadly, listened and believed other Filipino officials who were merely after their selfish interests.
As a result of the grossly unfair actions of FIVB, serious consequences have come about. The volleyball teams sent by the new federation have turned in the worst performances in the recent SEA Games held in Singapore. Funding for Philippine volleyball, totalling a quarter of a billion pesos has come to a full stop as the new FIVB-recognized federation entered the picture. And now more than ever, divisiveness is at an all-time high for Philippine volleyball.
In view of all these, this petition is being launched to compel FIVB to take a second look at the Philippine volleyball situation. Hopefully, with this petition, FIVB will take the time to listen to what PVF has to say. Hopefully too, FIVB will rectify its mistake as the collective voices of Filipinos and everyone around the world resonate.

Let us do something.
