A new champion will be crowned as Japan, winner of the last two editions in Biñan, Laguna and Seoul, did not join, mainly due to coronavirus disease 2019 concerns.

The Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) thanked the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases for approving its request to hold the tournament.

“We would like to thank the IATF and Malacañang for approving our request,” PNVF president Ramon Suzara said.
