Action returns in Cebu Press Freedom Volleyball Tournament

MEDIA practitioners in Cebu are not back to their respective beats and stations, but to the field, as they opened this year’s Cebu Press Freedom Week on Saturday, September 17, 2022, with a tournament of volleyball.

The Cebu Mixed Press Freedom Invitational Tournament has returned two years after it was shut down due to the coronavirus disease 2022 (Covid-19) pandemic.

This year, the media professionals are joined by representatives of their news sources, who have also formed a team that is competitive enough to make the matches more intense and exciting.

Six teams are in the running for this year’s cash prizes, along with titles such as Most Valuable Player (MVP), Top Forward, Top Blocker, Top Receiver, Top Passer, Top Server and best muse.

The first day of the tournament was held Saturday at the University of San Carlos (USC) Main Gymnasium on Sanciangko Street in Cebu City. The second day of the elimination round will take place on September 24, while the semi-finals and the championship will take place on October 1.

Event sponsors include Visayan Electric, Converge ICT Solutions Inc., USC and Rother’s Photography and Digital Printing.

The volleyball tournament is just one of the activities planned to celebrate Cebu’s 30th Press Freedom Week.
