History

edit

The Shakey's Super League was formally launched on August 16, 2022, at the Shakey's Pizza ASEANA outlet in Parañaque City.[4] This marks the return of Shakey's Pizza in Philippine volleyball since they served as the title sponsor for the Shakey's V-League (now Premier Volleyball League) from 2004 to 2017.[4]

The Shakey's Super League held its first tournament, the 2022 Collegiate Pre-Season Tournament, from September 22 to November 28, 2022.[4] The first tournament marks the return of full preseasons for the UAAP and NCAA teams since they were forced to resort to tune-ups due to disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.[5]

In May 2023, SSL launched the high school-level Girls Volleyball Invitational League (GVIL) with its inaugural edition. It is contested by teams from various associations across the country.[6]
