It is the first time in two decades that a Chief Executive declared a volleyball month, and it will serve as a morale booster to the world-class event organized by the Philippine Superliga (PSL) and Eventcourt with TV5, Petron, Asics, BMW and F2 Logistics as official sponsors, Diamond Hotel as official residence and Turkish Airlines as official airline.

The event is sanctioned by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB), Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) and the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI).
