It’s all systems for as Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 unveiled its plans for the 2019 President’s Cup.
And the winner of the first conference will have a chance to compete at the world stage.
“Unang una, nagpapasalamat ako sa team owners for your trust and support para sa suporta niyo sa liga natin. Our objective is to exude love of country for our countrymen. We are using this league to deliver that message,” said league owner Ronald Mascariñas.
The 12 pioneering teams in the league are the Bacoor Strikers, the Bataan Risers, the Bulacan Kuyas, the Cebu-Max 4 Birada, the Manila Stars, the Marikina Shoemakers, the Pasig-Grindhouse Kings, the Quezon City-Zark’s Jawbreakers, the San Juan-Go for Gold Knights, the Valenzuela Classic, the Vigan Baluante, and the Zamboanga Valientes.
During the first conference, there will be six legs which will start on February 16. The league will follow FIBA’s 3×3’s format.
There will be one champion team per leg. Teams will be ranked according to the point system which FIBA gave us. The rankings for the grand finals will be determined by the points gathered by the teams during the first five legs.
The top four teams will automatically gain a quarterfinals berth in the Grand Finals. Besides winning the President’s Cup, the winner will get PHP 1,000,000.
Besides this, the President’s Cup champion will have a chance to represent the country in the FIBA 3X3 World Tour.
All the games will be held at either SM Megamall and SM Fairview. Moreover, all legs will be shown live on ESPN5.
And Mascariñas is calling for cooperation from the team owners to make the first conference a success.
“We are not promising a smooth-sailing first conference but just like our reputation in the business industry, you are our partners. Kung may problema man, we will have open communications with the owners,” the amiable executive said.
