Memorable times and experiences will be highlighted when players, coaches and teams are feted on Wednesday evening in the first Puso Pilipinas Premier Volleyball League Awards.
Eleven awards will be given away during ceremonies which will celebrate the success of the last PVL conference, held last month in Bacarrat, Ilocos Norte.
PVL president Ricky Palou said the festivities will be a unique experience to the participants as it will definitely connect them with their fans and supporters.
“It’s something different, something new. And it should be exciting. I’m sure the fans will enjoy it,” said Palou on Monday.
The virtual awarding rites will be held starting at 7:30 p.m., to be held at the One Sports Channel 91 by Cignal TV.
Among the awards that will be given out is the Dime specialist award, which is about a player who can pass the ball to a specific target.
Another is the Ate Award, which is all about player leadership. The Upbeat Award will be handed out to a player or squad with a great reaction to a point scored.
Next is the Crowning Moment, which highlights a team’s celebration to a point. They will also have awards on the Hardest Hitter, the Block Party, the Tiktokerist of the Conference, the Best Server, and the Best Save.
PLDT-Smart executive Jude Turcuato said they are partnering with social media platform TikTok on the awards.
“The awards is for us to remember and celebrate the success of the tournament, and volleyball in the Philippines,” said Turcuato.
Organizers said they were to hold the tournament despite the difficulties and challenges posed on organizers in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.
