Ahomiro will see action
FORMER Ateneo stalwart Amy Ahomiro gets to play in the coming Premier Volleyball League Open Conference after all.
That is after the league amended its rule about permanent residents to allow the Perlas spiker to see action in the conference which starts Saturday at FilOil Flying V Center in San Juan City.
PVL president Ricky Palou said the organising Sports Vision will now allow players with Alien Certificate of Residence to play for as long as they have been residing in the Philippines for at least 10 years, said a PVL statement.
Ahomiro, who was born in Kiwi, has been a long-time resident in the country having studied at Brent School in high school before playing for the Lady Eagles.
"Our next conference is an Open Conference, not All- Filipino,” said Palou in a statement. “This is so because we will allow foreign nationals who are residents of the Philippines and holders of an ACR to play in our league.”
He added: ”However, we have put a restrictions and only foreign residents and ACR holders for 10 continuous years will be allowed to play in Open Conference.”
The league had previously said it won’t allow ACR-holders in the conference including Ahomiro and Thai Pacharee Sangmuang who is living in the country for three years.
Ahomiro’s green light is welcome news for Perlas which lost Dzi Gervacio who is studying in the United States for two months.
