MANILA, Philippines – After 5 years, the Philippines is set to host a FIBA 3×3 World Tour Masters leg once more.
Behind Chooks-to-Go, Manila will host the second Masters tournament of the 2020 FIBA 3×3 World Tour season, FIBA announced on Monday, January 20.
The Chooks-to-Go Manila Masters will take place from May 2 to 3 at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall.
This is only the third time the country was awarded the level 10 event – the last time being in 2014 and 2015.
“Last year, 3×3 basketball once again entered the collective consciousness of the Filipino people,” said Chooks-to-Go president Ronald Mascariñas.
“We needed to continue that momentum and what better way to do so than hosting a World Tour Masters,” he said.
Expected to compete in the event are some of the world’s best 3×3 clubs, including Liman, Novi Sad, Riga Ghetto, and NY Harlem.
Serving as the qualifier for local teams is the upcoming Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 President’s Cup, which begins next month.
This year, the World Tour will have 13 Masters events. The World Tour Finals will take place in November in Riyadh.
Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas is also planning to host another Super Quest late this year. – Rappler.com
