Pro Volleyball League

MUMBAI: After a two-year gap, the best volleyball players in the country and a host of international stars are set to again turn out for a franchise based professional volleyball league - with a difference though. 

Gone from the picture is the Pro Volleyball League, which had earlier been endorsed by the faction-riven Volleyball Federation of India (VFI) and commercially managed by Baseline Ventures. In PVL's place is Prime Volleyball League, which has the same organisers in Baseline but out of the frame is VFI (some legal pushback is likely on the cards).
