PBA postpones all games this week

The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) has put on hold all of its scheduled games for this week until it gets a green light from the Games and Amusement Board (GAB) to continue its Governors’ Cup tournament.

The league has encountered some rough waters once again as its import-laden conference has been left hanging following the government’s decision to place Metro Manila under Alert Level 3 following the sudden surge of COVID-19 cases over the holiday season.

The league has already sent a letter to GAB on Monday and hopes to get a reply within a few days. Besides the GAB, the PBA also needs the approval of Local Government Units (LGUs) allowing it to hold the games.

Should the GAB allow the PBA to go ahead, a nod from the LGUs is still needed before it could conduct the games.

Before the latest surge of COVID-19 cases, the PBA has already been allowed a 50% percent capacity crowd at the SMART Araneta Coliseum. Its Christmas Day doubleheader that featured games between NLEX and Phoenix, and Ginebra and Magnolia, drew a crowd of 4,843.
