PBA GOVERNOR’S CUP TO OPEN ON DECEMBER 8
The PBA 2021 Governor's Cup Reinforced Conference will kick off on December 8 at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig, the league announced.
The second and last conference for the 46th season of PBA will feature imports with a height limit of 6-foot-6.
Despite the games being played in Metro Manila, fans are still not allowed to catch the live basketball action inside the venue.
With Metro Manila on Alert Level 2, the PBA is looking to allow a limited number of spectators while adhering to strict health and safety protocols.
PBA commissioner Willie Marcial is meeting with officials of different local government units about allowing audiences in their arenas.
“Kasalukuyan tayong nakikipag-usap sa mga LGUs at tayo ay umasa na mapagbibigyan ang ating kahilingan na pahintulutang makapasok at makapanood ang ating mga fans ng laro,” said Marcial.
The Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo, and the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan are also being considered as potential venues for PBA games.
The opening day was originally scheduled for November 28, but it was pushed back because imports entering the country had to go through health and safety protocols and clearance before they could join the team’s practices.
