Due to the extension of the enhanced community quarantine in the country, the Chooks-to-Go National Basketball Training Center (NBTC) National Finals and Coaches Convention, presented by SM, has been postponed once again to a later date.

“In light of the recent turn of events concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have decided to once again postpone the National Finals and the Coaches Convention,” read NBTC program director Eric Altamirano’s statement.

The National Finals, backed by Chooks-to-Go, SMART, Vivo, Darlington, Phoenix Fuels, Epson, Gatorade, Go for Gold, and Molten, was originally scheduled to take place from March 21-27, 2020 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. It was postponed to April 20-26.

However, the government deemed to extend the ECQ until April 30 which resulted in another postponement to the annual event.

“We are one with the government in preventing the spread of the virus and help in flattening the curve,” Altamirano said.

“Chooks-to-Go, NBTC, and SM are still in the process of finalizing the rescheduled date for the National Finals and the Coaches Convention. We assure that the participants and the public’s safety is our utmost priority. We shall inform everyone as soon as possible about the new date for our tournament,” he continued.

“Stay safe, stay healthy, and God bless!”
