IBK Industrial Bank, which ranked 6th in the 2022-2023 season, raised expectations with its powerful strength ahead of the new season. However, due to three consecutive losses since the opening, the recruitment has not yet had an effect.

Ponpoon, the starting setter for the Thailand national team, is an experienced player who has played in several leagues. He entered the V League, attracting a lot of attention as he was selected as the biggest player in the Asian Quarter Draft.

I think we are lucky to have brought in Ponpoon who is suitable for this.” He added, “Ponpoon has volleyball that he wants to do in his own way, so I don’t think there is a need to touch it much. “I have given my trust. Although Ponpoon has not shown any outstanding performance yet, he is expected to play the role of ace as coach Kim wishes once he completes his adaptation to the V-League.
