VisMin Southern Finals champs to take home P1M


ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR — Chooks-to-Go has once again up the stakes in the Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup.

For the Southern Finals pitting Mindanao champion Jumbo Plastic-Basilan and Visayas king KCS Computer Specialist-Mandaue, Chooks-to-Go president Ronald Mascariñas added P500,000 for the winner of the best-of-three series. Meanwhile, the runner-up will bring home an additional P400,000.

This would be on top of the P500,000 for the Southern champion and P100,000 for second place prize given by the league. That makes the total P1,000,000 for the victor and P500,000 for the bridesmaid.

The best-of-five Finals series begins on Wednesday night at 7PM still at the Pagadian City Gymnasium here. Game Two will take place on Thursday and, if necessary, the decider will happen on Friday.

“After much delay due to the ongoing pandemic, we have finally reached the Southern Finals. To reward the sacrifices made by the teams and the players, we have added to the prize money set to be received by the two champions in Basilan and KCS,” said Mascariñas.

“For me personally, I have been waiting for this game as the league has brought out the best in the Visayas and Mindanao regions,” added Mascariñas, a native of Butuan City.

“We are happy with this partnership with Chooks-to-Go since they have supported our vision of promoting talents in the Visayas and Mindanao regions. The additional prize money will truly inspire both Basilan and KCS to do their best and put on a show,” added league Chief Operations Officer Rocky Chan.

In both the Visayas and Mindanao legs, Chooks-to-Go gave P500,000 to the winners of the stops and P100,000 for the second-placers.

The Peace Riders of Basilan will head into the Southern Finals armed with a 10-game winning streak after topping the Mindanao leg. They last played back on Monday when they completed their leg sweep with a masterful 89-70 Game Two win over Petra Cement-Roxas.

On the other hand, KCS last played back on May 9 when it triumphed over heavily-favored MJAS Zenith-Talisay in Game Three to win the Visayas leg.

Mandaue will not have Finals MVP Ping Exciminiano, All-Visayas team member Gryann Mendoza, and Al Francis Tamsi in the Southern Finals.
