Safety top priority in Subic volleyball bubble, says SBMA chair
The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) emphasized that safety was the top requirement in the ongoing 2021 Gatorade-PSL Beach Volleyball Challenge Cup, a three-day competition held under a “sports bubble” at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
On Friday, SBMA chair and administrator Wilma Eisma welcomed the participants and organizers to Subic but reminded everyone to strictly observe health protocols, as required by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF).
The IATF approved the sports event.
“Please always remember that we are here today because we have kept Subic safe in these pandemic times. We have kept our Covid numbers low with the cooperation of our residents, workers and visitors,” Eisma said.
“We intend to keep it this way,” she said.
Eisma said the success of the volleyball tournament “will put Subic in the map as the bubble destination for sports and other events in the Philippines.”
