To the Philippine Arena we go.

Tickets for the much anticipated Game 5 of the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup between Ginebra and Meralco on Sunday are now available at Ticketnet and SM outlets.

This will be the third time the league will hold games in the world’s biggest indoor arena in Bocaue, Bulacan, but it will mark the first time a Finals game will be held here.


If necessary, Games 6 and 7 will also be played at the Philippine Arena.

The Gin Kings are leading the series, 2-1, but the Bolts have the momentum after their 94-81 Game 3 win on Wednesday.

The two previous playdates held at Philippine Arena attracted massive crowds as the league set gate attendance records whenever it took the action up north.

Ginebra will also play its third game in the court, where it currently holds a 2-0 record.


The Gin Kings topped TNT in the season opener in 2014, where the PBA, which was celebrating its 40th season, drew a record crowd of 52,612.

Ginebra also beat fierce rival Star in the Manila Clasico duel on Christmas Day last year.


Meanwhile, Meralco will have its first crack of the Bocaue court on Sunday.

The PBA Commissioner’s Office also announced that free rides will be provided to the fans who will be coming from Metro Manila. Rides will be on a first come-first serve basis.

JAM Liner terminals in Buendia and Cubao have been designated as the pick-up and drop-off points.
