MANILA, Philippines — League commissioner Willie Marcial said PBA teams can hold their own bubble training camp in areas under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).

The teams, however, would still need to gain permission from the respective local government unit to be allowed to practice.

Clearance from the Games and Amusements Board will also be needed by teams to resume training.


“We just need a letter from the Inter-Agency Task Force saying that you are being allowed to practice,” said Marcial in Filipino during Tuesday’s PSA Forum.

Marcial added that the teams are also required to present their health and safety protocols inside the bubble to the league.

“We want to see the protocols from the LGU and we’re going to study it first. If we see that they’re okay, then, they will be allowed to practice.”

The National Capital Region Plus has been placed under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) until April 30.


The PBA is hoping to return to play by late May or June.

Marcial said the PBA has turned its efforts to inoculate the entire league against COVID-19.
