The Pro Volleyball Federation is a women's professional indoor volleyball league in the United States. The league was announced on November 17, 2022.[2]


The Pro Volleyball Federation was announced in November 2022 as a new professional women's league that focused on giving American players access to high level volleyball at home while also making a livable wage.[3] The founders of the league include Super Bowl winning quarterback Trent Dilfer along with volleyball pioneers Cecile Reynaud and Laurie Corbelli.[4] The league was initially expected to include 10 teams but the league would lower the number to 8 in later reports. The first franchise was awarded to a group that will bring a team to Grand Rapids, Michigan. In February 2023, it was announced that singer-songwriter Jason Derulo would team up to own a team that will be based out of Omaha, Nebraska.[5] Atlanta, Georgia was then announced as the second market, followed by Columbus, Ohio.[6][7] The first 2025 franchise was awarded to a group led by Armand Sadoughi in July 2023 that will bring a team to Dallas, Texas.[8]


The inaugural Pro Volleyball Federation season will include 7 teams.
