Lakan Cup concludes in March; Season 4 starts June 12
Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League’s (MPBL) commitment goes beyond finishing the 2020 Lakan Cup. It will open its fourth season on June 12.
Sen. Manny Pacquiao, the MPBL CEO and founder, gave this assurance on Saturday in a Zoom meeting with the owners and representatives of the 31 teams which took part in the stalled Chooks-to-Go MPBL Lakan Cup.
“The MPBL will go on,” said Pacquiao in Filipino, adding he has more plans for the regional league, including building its own gym in Metro Manila to serve as a neutral venue.
San Juan and Makati, the North division finalists, and Davao Occidental and Basilan, the South finalists, stressed their readiness to finish the season in a bubble setup to be held in Subic, Zambales province.
