VisMin Cup cancels Thursday and Friday games

·1 min read

Games in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup for Thursday and Friday have been cancelled because of bad weather conditions in Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay that has affected the playing venue.

The league is also looking to return to its original host of Pagadian City in Zamboanga Del Sur and play its games at the Plaza Luz Gym.

The league explained they came up with the decision because of the bad weather in Ipil that forced two games to be halted because of the slippery floor.

The regional pro league was forced to transfer to Ipil due to Zamboanga Del Sur's modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) status that is effective until July 15.

"This is to inform you that the July 15 and July 16 scheduled games of the Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup Mindanao Leg will be postponed," said the memo forwarded by the league's head of basketball operations Chelito Caro, and noted by COO Rocky Chan.

"This is brought about by the inclement weather and pending updates on the lifting of the quarantine status and restrictions in Pagadian City."

President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to announce the updated quarantine status for July 16 to 31 tonight or on Thursday. If the expected lifting to general community quarantine of Zamboanga del Sur does not push through, the league plans to resume games on Saturday in a venue yet to be announced.

"Yes, we are planning to resume games on Saturday, July 17," said Chan. (JNP)
