Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) president Ramon “Tatz” Suzara has urged the volleyball fans to throw their support regardless of whom is wearing the country’s colors.

In an interview with Noli Eala’s Power & Play on Saturday, Suzara said that volleyball fans should follow the lead of Gilas Pilipinas fans who were supporting the team regardless of the composition of it.

“In the PBA, there are a thousand stars but when they are selected in the national team, the SBP supports them, the fans support them, the media supports them. So it should be the same [in volleyball],” Suzara said.

“There should be no difference between women’s volleyball and the PBA. Everybody should support the national team program,” he added.

There were some oppositions from the Filipino volleyball fans after the national women’s volleyball team coaches opted not to consider Alyssa Valdez and Julia Morado in the team.
