The moment Ced Domingo returns to the Philippines, her new PVL home will be already charged and ready to go.

A day after her release from Creamline, Akari announces Saturday that the star middle blocker is committed to the Chargers.



Domingo joins fellow PVL champion Grethcel Soltones as latest Akari recruits heading into the 2024 season.


“Nakaka-overwhelm ‘yung mga pangyayari,” Domingo said.


“Kapag binuksan mo ‘yung pinto tapos ang daming kumakatok, talagang nakaka-overwhelm. Gratefully, my VP family helped me sort things out. They assisted me in finding the best team that would match my interests, goals and values and a team that will help me improve more,” she added.


A longtime Cool Smasher, Domingo has been away since the 2nd PVL All-Filipino Conference to play international volleyball.


Her home in Thailand is Nakhonratchasima, and her home in the PVL will be Akari.


However, Creamline will always be close to Ced.


“Leaving Creamline is always a hard decision. That’s how it felt in October, lalo na biglaan ‘yung Thailand offer. But I thought this opportunity doesn’t come often, so I grabbed it,” Domingo said.


“And this time, another hard decision to leave them [Cool Smashers] for good. Honestly, the management has always been so understanding… I still really felt valued kaya I will always have high respect to the whole Creamline family,” she added.
