Calvin Abueva completes GAB requirements, appeal to PBA to begin

Calvin Abueva has completed the requirements set by the Games and Amusements Board for him to get his professional license back, Wednesday evening.

The enigmatic 32-year-old forward completed the third and last webinar regarding the Code of Conduct of a Professional Player.

He also passed the mandatory drug test last week.

With this, Abueva will now have to wait for the recommendations of health and safety official Kara Mallonga, which will also be submitted to the PBA.

“We try our best to take care of our stakeholders, regardless of the circumstances, so we had discussions with Phoenix Fuel Masters to ascertain that they are committed to providing Abueva with the support that he will be needing as a professional athlete within the confines of their role as team management,” said Chairman Baham Mitra.

Attending the briefing after the webinar were Mitra, Abueva, head coach Topex Robinson, and team manager Paolo Bugia.

During the meeting, Bugia was advised to “submit the formal documentary requirements required for the formal reinstatement, after the evaluation is released and Abueva is able to satisfy all that is needed, he can then start his appeal to return to play with the PBA.”

When he gets his license, Abueva will be put under probation and will still be required to report to GAB on a monthly basis.

Abueva was suspended indefinitely by the PBA back on June 4, 2019, for violent behavior and unsportmanlike conduct.
