The Games and Amusements Board (GAB) on Wednesday approved the Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup as a professional cage league, marking the start of a new era of basketball in the regions as 12 teams have already signed up for the inaugural season set to start on April 9.

Baham Mitra, the GAB chair, and commissioner Eduard Trinidad, announced the approval of the VisMin Super Cup’s GAB license to operate as a professional league.

League chief operating officer Rocky Chan said that six teams each from the Visayas and Mindanao have joined the league, a much-needed development that will generate more jobs at this time of health and economic crises.

Ballclubs from Mandaue, Lapu-Lapu and Talisay cities in Cebu province hopped on board together with a team from Eastern Samar and two other squads from the Visayas with MDC, a Filipino-made leather basketball, named as the official ball of the league.
