The Pro Volleyball Federation, the newest women’s professional indoor volleyball league in the United States, reported that it finished its inaugural season this month with much to celebrate, including players, fans and communities that shared in the League’s success.

The PVF said it debuted with seven teams, putting squads in Atlanta, Columbus, Grand Rapids, Omaha, Orlando, San Diego, and Las Vegas on the court. The Federation’s launch “created immediate fan interest and engagement by attracting world-class players and coaches.” The PVF ensures “that the level, quality of play, investment in and treatment of players, was the best offered anywhere.” The results reportedly paid off for all involved with the Federation.

“Sports fans were watching these amazing athletes, as our League posted overall attendance just under 400,000 fans with 3.9 million viewers streaming matches on YouTube,” touted Jen Spicher, CEO of the Pro Volleyball Federation. “Our players were also compensated for their talents, with a minimum salary of at least $60,000 for the season. Some earned as much as $125,000, and several secured bonus money.”

The League reported it “will continue to be a leader in player compensation,” announcing increased salaries for 2025 in March. Top salaries were set at $175,000, with additional benefits of approximately $10,000 per player, making the PVF one of the strongest in financial benefits for women’s professional sports.

“Pro Volleyball Federation successfully attracted some of the world’s best indoor volleyball players,” noted Dr. Cecille Reynaud, VP of volleyball operations. “This season, we had over 110 players from ten different countries. Seven that were part of our rosters are now training with their respective national teams in the United States, Canada and the Dominican Republic.”

The Pro Volleyball Federation reported plans to add three more teams in 2025 and is working on new ways to build a stronger financial model of revenue sharing.
