Alcantara, Cebu will host the opening of the Philippines VisMin Super Cup, the first community-based professional basketball league in the South, on April 9.
Due to the resurgence of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in Cebu City, VisMin Cup organizers have agreed, in collaboration with former PBA star and now Cebu City Councilor Don Don Hontiveros, to hold the opening ceremony of the Visayas leg in Alcantara .
“We have only one case of COVID-19 in our municipality,” Alcantara Mayor Fritz Lastimoso said yesterday in “Usapang Sports on Air” via Zoom of Tabloids Organization in Philippine Sports (TOPS).
Hontiveros said they value the safety of the teams more so they chose Alcantara as the venue of the VisMin Cup season-opening.
The Games and Amusements Board (GAB) approved the decision of the VisMin organizers to move the venue to Alcantara.
Chan added in the said forum sponsored by GAB, Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) and PAGCOR that the Mindanao leg will be held in the first week of May where the MDC and the league’s official ball are the major sponsors of the VisMin Super Cup.
