MANILA, Philippines — Fans will have to wait a little longer before the sixth installment of the Lady Spikers and Lady Eagles finals duel.


The UAAP on Tuesday announced that instead of Saturday, Game One of the 79th UAAP women's volleyball finals between Ateneo and La Salle will be held on Tuesday, April 2.


#UAAPSeason79 Volleyball Finals will start on May 2 and not on April 29. Game 2 will be on May 6 and if necessary, Game 3 on May 10. (1/2)

The change of schedule will give way to the country's hosting of the ASEAN summit from April 26-29.


The men's team of Ateneo will also play on May 2 after a 23-day break.


The Blue Eagles swept the elimination round to gain an automatic finals berth. They will face the winner of the do-or-die match between FEU and NU on Wednesday.
