SSL 2022 format
18 teams divided into 4 pools. The All to Play rule will be implemented.
The All to Play rule explainer: different sets of players except the libero will play in the 1st and 2nd sets. Regular substitution will return when the match score reaches 16. The 3rd, 4th and 5th sets are standard play.
The top two teams from each pool will advance to the next round where they will be grouped into two pools for another round-robin play to determine their ranking in the knockout quarterfinals.
Winning team will then battle in a knockout semifinal and winner-take-all finals.
The SSL was formally launched on August 16, 2022 at the Shakey’s Pizza ASEANA outlet in Parañaque City. 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.
