PSL Manila coach Branislav Moro and his players have completed their first week of preparation for the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship in Manila from October 18 to 23.

The players are developing chemistry on and off the court in preparation for the international federation’s flagship event for women’s club teams.

This is a very big competition, maybe five times more competitive than the Asian club championship,” said head coach Branislav Moro

The competition here is the same, or even better, than at the Olympic games. The top players in at least six teams are all capable of playing in the Olympics. We should not be complacent. This is a very important and serious tournament.

Moro added that although everybody is already on board, the team is yet to train at full force as some of the players are also preparing for the 2016 PSL Grand Prix which kicks off on October 8.

Moro may also be coaching in the PSL Grand Prix after being tipped to replace Fabio Menta as head coach of the Foton Tornadoes.

This is going to be difficult,” said Moro.We have to train hard because we have a very short time for this competition. By next week, we have to start our training matches with some PSL teams. It will determine where we are right now and what are the aspects we need to work on. We will also know the mix of players we will use at the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship.

The 2016 edition of the Women’s Club World Championship will take place from October 18 to 23 in Manila, the Philippines and WorldofVolley will be there! So, stay tuned.

IMO, this tournament looks every year a bit more like a private invitational tournament that just boasts a very official and glorious sounding name. 3 teams from Asia, 4 teams from Europe. Because of too many wild cards. Why is Volero still there after not making the Champions League Final Four? The ‘world of volley’ seems to become a very small place, accessible only for the privileged super rich clubs and their influential helpers, which is a sad development. I would replace Volero and Hisamitsu Springs with Ahly from Egypt (for Africa) and the Toronto Varsity Blues (for Norceca).
