MANILA, Philippines — After a long wait, the 82nd UAAP volleyball tournament finally gets underway today, featuring an interesting battle between Far Eastern U and University of the East in both the men’s and women’s divisions at the MOA Arena in Pasay City.

The Lady Tamaraws and the Lady Warriors, who are both in rebuilding phase following the graduation of veteran players, gun for a big start when they lock horns in the main event at 3:30 p.m.

Last year’s runners-up Tamaraws, meanwhile, kick off their redemption bid against the Red Warriors beforehand at 2 p.m to officially usher in the new volleyball season, which was delayed for two weeks due to the COVID-19 scare.
