The PBA Board of Governors has agreed to resume the Governors’ Cup by the first week of February.
The league's decision to push through with the conference was due to the cases of COVID-19 slowing down in Metro Manila.
“As cases of COVID-19 infections in Metro Manila start to slow down, the PBA board unanimously agreed to resume action in the Governors' Cup by the first week of February,” the league said in the statement.
The league has given all teams 10 days to hold scrimmage before returning to action.
Commissioner Willie Marcial said that the league is waiting for the go-signal from the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and concerned LGUs for the resumption of scrimmages.
The PBA has earlier gained the endorsement of the Games and Amusements Board (GAB), led by Chairman Baham Mitra.
The league suspended the Governors' Cup entering 2022 as the national government placed the National Capital Region and its nearby province to Alert Level 3.
