2021 FIBA Asia Cup

KOR, CHN, JPN, INA set to arrive for Clark window

Four nations will arrive in the country on Sunday for the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers.

China will be the first team to arrive at 1:20PM on a chartered China Southern Airlines plane. They will have 24 members in their contingent.

A couple of hours later, South Korea, riding a chartered Jeju Airlines plane, is expected to arrive at 3:20PM over at Clark International Airport. They will have 22 members in their delegation.

At 9:40PM over at Terminal 1 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, the 25-man Japanese contingent will arrive.

Already in the country are seven members of Indonesia, who arrived at 11:00 PM of Saturday. The rest of the team will land at Terminal 3 on Sunday at 11:00 PM.

On Monday, the 25-person Chinese-Taipei delegation will land in Clark at 12:00 NN. Meanwhile Thailand — which will only bring in 11 players, a coach, and a couple of staff members — will arrive on June 16 in Terminal 2.

The hostilities in the Clark window begin on Wednesday. The Group B showdown between China and Japan takes place at 4:30 PM; followed by the rivalry game between Gilas and South Korea at 6:00 PM.

All visitors who have boarded their flights have tested negative in their RT-PCR tests. Once they arrive, they will again be tested before heading to Clark.

Once every member of the delegation yields a negative result, they will be able to train. The Quest Hotel and the AUF Sports & Cultural Center are part of the “controlled bubble”.

On Thursday, Korea takes on Indonesia in the first game followed by Chinese-Taipei versus China.
