After a fantastic 2018 Asian Games, the Philippine women’s volleyball team will compete once again with the best squads in the region at the Asian Women’s Volleyball Cup 2018. Slated from the 16th to the 23rd of September, powerhouse teams such as South Korea, China, Japan, and Thailand will use this as warm-up for the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship that will start six days after this tournament hails a champion.

Meanwhile, Team Philippines looks to apply the lessons they have learned from their Asian Games stint as they put on a good showing in this week-long tournament. Other nations participating in this competition organized by the Asean Volleyball Confederation are Kazakhstan, Chinese Taipei, Australia, Iran, and Vietnam.

The Philippine squad will look to exact revenge against Kazakhs which defeated them in a five-set classic. Aside from them, our volleybelles must contend with Iran and Australia first if they are to move to the quarterfinals. The four nations mentioned are grouped together in Pool C wherein the bottom two finishers will be relegated to the Asian Women’s Volleyball Challenge Cup.

Meanwhile, Japan, Thailand, and South Korea are part of Pool A while China, Vietnam, and Chinese Taipei are in Pool B. All six teams are guaranteed of a quarterfinal berth but their performance in this Asian volleyball tournament will determine their seeding.

Here is the full schedule for the sixth edition of the AVC Asian Women’s Volleyball Cup. We will update the quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals match-ups once they have been determined.
