Korea will be one of the teams that Gilas Pilipinas will be playing in the Clark bubble, with the two rivals set to compete on June 16 and 20 at the Angeles University Foundation gym in their Group A match.
China and Japan, on the other hand, will also be playing against each other twice in Group B on June 16 and 19.

Organizers led by the Bases Conversion Development Authority said they will implement strict protocols from the airport to Clark where the delegates will be housed to prevent contagion of COVID-19 among the participants.
