Thank you, F2! (PVL)

One of the best teams in the Philippine professional volleyball scene will no longer compete in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL).

In a shocking statement issued by the F2 Logistics franchise, the Efren Uy-owned company confirmed that they already disbanded their PVL team, the Cargo Movers, last December 12, 2023.

After several failed campaigns since moving to the PVL from the now-defunct Philippine Superliga, the F2 Logistics said that they will be halting its Cargo Movers squad and will be focusing on their grassroots programs.

Volleyball fans from all over the country shifted their focus to the Cargo Movers with the expectation that they could also dominate the league when they decided to join the PVL.

However, successive disappointing outings and unfortunate injuries derailed the Cargo Movers’ ultimate plan of ruling the PVL.

In their whole PVL stint, the Cargo Movers failed to move on to the championship round and only managed to clinch a single podium finish in two years.

In the ongoing All-Filipino Conference, the Cargo Movers suffered its worst PVL campaign after finishing eighth place with a 4-8 win-loss record.

Before, key players like Majoy Baron, Ara Galang, and Kim Fajardo were always sidelined due to their respective injuries but things worsened in this year’s conference when top spiker Kim Dy also got hurt and didn’t play a single game.

In the last stretch of the season, Jolina Dela Cruz also got hurt after injuring her knee and was sidelined for the rest of the year.

“A number of injuries to our players forced us to take slower steps, prioritizing health over victories in the past few years. We give our utmost thanks to the coaching staff who have fought and tried to make this team stronger. We would most like to thank Coach Ramil De Jesus, for continuously heading the team,” wrote F2.

As of now, the current players of the Cargo Movers are yet to announce their next move whether they will be entering the PVL free agency pool or test the waters overseas.
