PBA second conference opener pushed back
The league pushed back the planned opener after earlier setting a target of mid-November. The league is waiting for clearance from the local government of Pasig City where Ynares Sports Arena is located.
PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial said the league is also hoping fans can be allowed inside the game venue in the second confrence.
“Metro Manila, tingnan natin ang Ynares. Kakausapin pa natin si [Pasig City] Mayor Vico (Sotto) tapos tingnan natin sa IATF baka pwede na ang audience. Kapag puwede na, kausapin naman natin ibang venues,” said Marcial.
Teams can start practicing for the Governors' Cup on Saturday, but only if the squads have secured a clearance from the local government unit where their training facility is situated.
