Atlast! The long wait is over. The final list of the participating teams in the Shakey's V-League Season 8 2nd Conference has been finalized. I didn't expect that the Shakey's V-League would be able to find teams who will fill in the positions that were left by the other school teams this fast. They are really dedicated to their work and to their vision.
Going on, according to the Twitter account of Vleaguedottk here are the final list of the participating teams in the Shakey's V-League Season 8 Second Conference.
As you can see we'll have Talk 'n Text, Maynilad and Meralco commercial teams in the upcoming V-League 2nd Conference. Those 3 teams have something to do with Mr. Manny V. Pangilinan or MVP for short. He owns Meralco and Talk 'n Text and he's the chairman of Maynilad. All I can say is that he's really a sports enthusiast down to his core. You can really count on this person whenever you need assistance in any sports. He's also a competitive owner so expect his teams to be competitive also. Talk 'n Text will have the defending champions the Ateneo De Manila Lady Eagles. For sure the other 2 Manny Pangilinan teams will have an all star line-up.
The Armed Forces of the Philippines' (AFP) three teams, the Philippine Navy, the Philippine Army and the Philippine Airforce already have great and strong football teams. We should also expect them to have strong volleyball teams because they know how to train really hard for their goals.
The other two teams will also be commercialized, the ExcellRoof will have the San Sebastian College Recoletos and the Hapee toothpaste will have the University of Perpetual Help System Dalta.
The Shakey's V-League is slowly evolving into a commercialized league much like the late Philippine Basketball League or PBL which was replaced by the PBA-Dleague. The teams will now have the luxury because of the budget that they have, to choose the players that they need in their respective teams. We should expect more powerful hits and more close matches in the upcoming V-League 2nd Conference.
