    The league is waiting for communication from interested members teams as it determines the schedule and format.

    In a letter to its member ballclubs signed by commissioner Kenneth Duremdes, the MPBL said the event will be held under a bubble or semi-bubble format, depending on the decision of the Inter-Agency Task Force.

    Duremdes said the tournament “intends to provide the players, coaches, support personnel, as well as the MPBL staff a source of income for the holidays.”
