PBA Governors’ Cup to tip off on December 8

The PBA Governors’ Cup is set to tip off on December 8 after the league gained the green light from the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).

With this development, league commissioner Willie Marcial will be meeting with various LGU officials of the different venues the PBA is looking to hold games in to see if the league will be allowed to host fans now that the government has significantly eased the restrictions.

The Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, the MOA Arena in Pasay City, the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo, the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City and the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan are all prospective venues of the upcoming tournament.

“Kasalukuyan tayong nakikipagusap mga LGUs at tayo ay umasa na mapagbibigyan ang ating kahilingan na pahintulutang makapasok at makapanood ang ating mga fans ng laro,” said Marcial on the league’s official website.

However, without said approval, the first two games of the import-laden competition will be held at the Ynares Arena in Pasig City without any fans yet.

Still, excitement is brewing with imports being allowed to play in the league for the first time since the pandemic broke out. The imports who will be playing are KJ McDaniels of NLEX, Alaska’s Olu Ashaolu, Brandon Brown of San Miguel, Cameron Forte of NorthPort, Terrafirma’s Antonio Hester, Henry Walker of Rain or Shine, Meralco’s Tony Bishop, Justine Brownlee of Ginebra, Jaylen Bond of Blackwater, McKenzie Moore of TNT, Paul Harris of Phoenix and Mike Harris of Magnolia.
