MANILA, Philippines – Bicolano fans would have to wait a little longer before they see their favorite PBA players in action as the league was forced to transfer the venue of the February 3 game from Legazpi City in Albay to the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City.
Barangay Ginebra and the NLEX Road Warriors were supposed to clash in Legazpi City for the league's first out-of-town game of February. But due to the worsening condition of the Mayon Volcano in Albay, the PBA had to change the venue for the game.
However, the PBA, on its official Facebook page, assured fans that it will set another playdate in Legazpi City "as soon as its playing schedule permits."
The Mayon Volcano has been under Alert Level 3 since Sunday evening, January 14, meaning a "hazardous eruption is possible within weeks or even days."
Delfin Dioquino dreamt of being a PBA player, but he did not have the skills to make it. So he pursued the next best thing to being an athlete – to write about them. He took up journalism at the University of Santo Tomas and joined Rappler as soon as he graduated in 2017.
