The Shakey’s V-League is an intercollegiate women’s volleyball league in the Philippines formed in 2004 under the management group led by former PBA commissioner Jun Bernardino and pizza company Shakey’s. Jun Bernandino invited his fellow Ateneo alumni Moying Martelino, Tony Boy Liao, Ricky Palou and Jun Jun Capistrano in the 2nd conference of the 1st season to be included in governing the Shakey’s V-League.

The UST Tigresses is the winningest team in the league with six championships followed by the DLSU Lady Archers with three V-League crowns. AdU Lady Falcons and SSC-R Lady Stags have one championship each.

The UST Tigresses won the inaugural V-League championship in 2004 defeating the La Salle Lady Archers. But the De La Salle University-Manila volley-belles have won the next three conferences of the said league defeating their arch-rivals, UST Tigresses in both conferences of Season 2 and SSC – R Lady Stags in Season 3, sweeping them both in the Finals of the three conferences. The UST Tigresses returned to the League in 2007, after missing Season 3, winning both conferences of Season 4 by defeating the SSC-R Lady Stags in both finals series. Year 2008 saw the crowning of two other schools aside from UST and DLSU. Adamson University won the championship in the first conference of Season 5 defeating the ADMU Lady Eagles in the finals. San Sebastian College-Recoletos Lady Stags won the second conference of season 5 by sweeping the two comebacking champion teams: DLSU Lady Archers in the semifinals and UST Tigresses in the finals. However, the Tigresses made history via a "three-peat" winning their fourth, fifth and sixth championships by sweeping both conferences of Season 6 by defeating SSC-R and Adamson, respectively in both championship series, and again winning the first conference of Season 7 by beating SSC-R for the fourth time in the finals.

During the onset of the league, the games were used to be held in the Lyceum of The Philippines University Gymnasium.

    The Shakey’s V-League has been a source of great volleyball games ever since its inception. In some ways, its equal in excitement with UAAP Volleyball games because of innovations to the game the UAAP Volleyball games cannot do such as guest players etc. We hope the Shakey’s V-League will continue to flourish and grow to further nurture Philippine volleyball. Mabuhay ang Shakey’s V-League.
