PBA chairman wants ‘PBA vs China’ on Season 46 opener


PBA chairman Ricky Vargas came up with an idea of holding a series of exhibition matches that will see a team composed of PBA stars facing off against the China national team to jumpstart the 46th season.

Vargas said that he plans to make it a best-of-seven series between China and the “PBA Warriors” which will be under NLEX Road Warriors coach Yeng Guiao.

“I would like to see Season 46 jumpstarted with this exhibition match, the technical aspects of which could be crafted by our tournament officials. We need to give our people inspiration and hope,” Vargas said.

The league has yet to come up with the official date of the PBA Season 46 opener due to the rising cases of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Vargas also pushed all PBA players to get vaccinated.

“We need to rally our people towards a common goal. Let us all sacrifice for the greater good and for a stronger PBA. We will pivot, deliver, transform and perform,” he said.
