The Philippine Basketball Association has indicated its plans to restart the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup by mid-October if everything falls into place.
The league recently has been given the go signal for small clustered group practices and will look to push things further by targeting to do scrimmages by September.
PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial is very much hopeful that things will go well as the country battles the pandemic.
"Sana payagan din tayo, pero lahat na iyan siguro depende kung nasaan na tayo dito sa (COVID-19) virus," said Marcial through PBA.ph
"Kung tumataas pa rin ang mga kaso nand'yan pa rin posibilidad na tumaas ulit ang quarantine level. Pero kung steady lang ang number o, mas maganda, bumaba malamang payagan tayo," Marcial adds.
It will now depend on the approval of the IATF to allow the PBA to hold scrimmages by September to gear up on reopening the league since its indefinite suspension since March 11.
