FIBA 3×3 remains committed to Chooks-to-Go PH 3×3


FIBA 3×3 lauded Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 for continuing to compete in the 2021 pro circuit.

For FIBA 3×3 managing director Alex Sanchez, the participation of Manila Chooks TM shows the commitment of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 in growing the halfcourt game in the country.

“I think we should be very grateful to Chooks-to-Go for insisting and continuing its effort to help 3×3 in the Philippines,” said Sanchez. “We always thought and believed that the Philippines is a great opportunity and market for 3×3.

“Therefore, we can only be grateful for this continuous effort in these difficult times where we know the pandemic is hitting the Philippines hard.”

Since the pandemic broke out, Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 has sent teams to four FIBA 3×3 World Tour Masters tournaments.

Back in November 2020, Manila Chooks TM competed in the Doha Masters.

The results though have been far from expected as Manila Chooks TM went 1-1 in the qualifying draw of the Doha Masters. Meanwhile, they went winless in both the main draw of both the Montreal and Abu Dhabi Masters.

Though the results fell short of expectations, Sanchez understands that the program is in a rebuild.

“Well, I think that we have proven that we believe in Chooks-to-Go,” he said. “We invited you to several events during these 18 months of pandemic and you are here with us in Abu Dhabi.

“Unfortunately, it did not perform as expected. We hope that when it’s allowed to continue training, Chooks-to-Go can send strong teams. From that perspective, we believe in what you are doing. We hope that by the end of this pandemic, Chooks-to-Go will come back stronger like in the past. We will continue to support you,” he expressed.

“We were close to having a 2020 Manila Masters. The issue is the current pandemic. We had a nice venue chosen together,” lamented the Spanish sports official.

“I’m optimistic that in 2022, we will be having more events together.”
