PBA postpones Governors' Cup games indefinitely, suspends team scrimmages

The PBA on Thursday, January 6, announced that Governors' Cup games will be postponed until such time when the current COVID-19 surge eases.

The league has also suspended all team scrimmages, the PBA Commissioner’s Office said, a day after the Board of Governors’ special meeting.

"It's always a painful decision to postpone PBA games. But at this time when the infection rate is rising, the risk of continuing with the game for our players, officials and staff far outweigh our financial loss. The PBA will be back. Its just a temporary pause to allow healing. This way we can assure our fans the quality of games will be sustained," said PBA chairman Ricky Vargas.

"Yung health and safety talaga ng lahat ang importante. Mahirap na, we can't put the people under our care at risk, ganon din yung mga makakasalamuha nila. Mabuti na yung nag-iingat," Comm. Willie Marcial said.

PBA postpones all scheduled games this week

The Philippine Basketball Association has postponed all scheduled games this week as the league awaits Games and Amusements Board (GAB) and local government units (LGUs) approval.

The announcement was made after Metro Manila was placed under Alert Level 3 due to the rising cases of COVID-19 in the country.


The 2021 PBA Governors' Cup games were supposed to resume on Wednesday after the holiday break.
