    The PBA board is set for its first league planning session outside Manila since 2020.

    THE PBA Board is bound for Boracay over the weekend to plot the course of the league for its coming 47th season.

    PBA board to hold planning session

    Chairman Ricky Vargas and commissioner Willie Marcial will be presiding over the two-day event beginning on Friday.

    Marcial said originally the entire board is going to attend the first-ever league planning session outside of Manila since 2020.

    Unfortunately, Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) president Al S. Panlilio, who is also board representative of Meralco, won’t be able to make it.

    The country’s basketball federation will instead be represented by assistant executive director Butch Antonio, who is going to lay down before the league the plans and programs of Gilas Pilipinas leading to the country’s hosting and campaign in the 2023 FIBA World Cup.

    The Board also welcomes new team member Converge ICT Solutions to the PBA family, with team governor and former commissioner Chito Salud representing the franchise that recently bought the Alaska ballcub.

      The title-clinching Game 6 alone set a record-high attendance of 20,224 at the Mall of Asia last week, which the Kings won, 103-92.
