Game 6 of PBA Governors’ Cup Finals postponed

·1 min read

Game 6 of the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum has been postponed after a fire hit the venue earlier in the day.

The decision was made not long after the Grand Finals of the PBA 3x3 Second Conference was halted due to the said incident. Although fire trucks had left the venue hours before the 6 p.m. tipoff, the PBA decided to postpone the game with the safety of all in mind.

“Ayaw nating ipagsapalaran ang kaligtasan ng mga fans, ng mga players at mga game staff. Better safe than sorry,” said PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial.

With that, Game 6 has moved to Friday over at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

“All Smart Araneta Coliseum Game 6 ticket holders can refund their ticket purchases at the Big Dome’s ticketing office,” the PBA said in a statement.

After back-to-back wins on Holy Wednesday and Easter Sunday, the Gin Kings were to take their first shot at wrapping up the Ginebra-Meralco IV before an expected sellout crowd at the Big Dome.

But with the incident, hostilities will instead resume over at the MOA where the two teams split Games 2 and 3.

The Kings triumphed in Game 2, 99-93, then the Bolts took Game 3, 83-74. (JNP)
