PSL imposes 1-year ban, P50k fine on Cebuana Soltones
GRETHCEL Soltones was on the receiving end of a one-year ban and a P50,000 fine after violating the Philippine Superliga’s (PSL) One League Policy.
The league handed down the decision on Monday as the three-time NCAA Most Valuable Player from Catmon, Cebu, who has a live contract with Iriga in the ongoing PSL Grand Prix, competed in the Premier Volleyball League’s (PVL) All-Star Game last Oct. 29.
“The Philippine Superliga strictly enforces the One League Policy prohibiting its players from playing and/or participating in other tournaments during the one-year playing commitment with the PSL. The act of Ms. Soltones in playing/participating in the PVL All-Stars is a clear violation of our existing policy,” wrote PSL President Ramon “Tats” Suzara in a letter to Iriga Mayor Madeleine Alfelor.
Soltones only suited up for one game for the Lady Oragons, playing in their opening day assignment against Sta. Lucia.
With the decision, Soltones will be barred from playing in the PSL until Nov. 5 next year.
The former San Sebastian open spiker is the third player to violate the league’s One League Policy since its enforcement in 2016 following Pau Soriano and Lillet Mabbayad, who both played for Bureau of Customs in the Shakey’s V-League after their campaign with Standard Insurance-Navy in the PSL All-Filipino Cup.
