The PBA last played a game in December 2020 when it crowned Barangay Ginebra as Philippine Cup champion in a bubble in Clark, Pampanga.
This time, the league will have a closed-circuit setup for the Philippine Cup where teams, league personnel and the media are encouraged to maintain a venue-home routine to minimize exposure from COVID-19.
Games will be held four times a week. The conference is expected to run until October.
