August 17, 2022 - Wednesday 1:08 PM by GDMFIBA
This basketball-crazed nation will be able to finally see Jordan Clarkson wear the Gilas Pilipinas uniform on home soil on Aug. 29.
The momentous occasion will set back fans by as much as P10,000 (patron VIP) and as low as P100 (general admission), the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas announced on Monday.
Clarkson, who has blossomed into a full-fledged NBA star with the Utah Jazz, is set to banner a Philippine squad featuring a healthy mix of stars from the Philippine Basketball Association, standouts plying their trade in Japan, and 7-foot-3 center Kai Sotto.
That squad will first play Lebanon in Beirut on Aug. 25, then host Saudi Arabia at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Patron tickets will fetch P5,000. Premium lower box and regular lower box seats, on the other hand, cost P1,500 and P1,000, respectively.
Tickets were made available on Monday and could be purchased through www.smtickets.com and via SM ticket outlets nationwide.
Those on a tight budget can still catch the Filipino-American cager with the Nationals through upper box seats priced at P250.
Clarkson, winner of the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award two seasons ago, will also play for Gilas in the game against Fiba Asia Cup runner-up Lebanon in Beirut on Aug. 25.
