The office of the PBA Commissioner has instructed its teams to stop holding activities such as practices and scrimmages as part of the league’s precautionary measures against coronavirus for two weeks.
PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial said that he already sent a memorandum to all of its teams instructing them to halt basketball-related activities.
“Kinausap ako ng mga governors na itigil muna,” said Marcial. “Sila na ang nag-initiate.”
“The Office of the Commissioner, with the approval of the PBA Board of Governors, will implement and strictly impose a two-week break from practices, scrimmages and other related activities to ALL PBA Teams starting tomorrow, March 14 – Saturday until March 27 – Friday.
Further instructions will be handed out as the league continues to assess the current situation.
We seek your utmost cooperation and compliance and enjoin everyone to keep safe and follow the guidelines set by our government health workers to avoid the spread of the virus.”
Last Wednesday, PBA has announced that their season was put on hold or “until further notice” because of the fears brought by COVID-19. Apart from PBA, the PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup, and the upcoming PBA 3×3 tournament were also put on hold.
“Baka April (2021) na tayo matapos,” said Marcial.
