PBA Governors’ Cup Finals Game 7 to be played at Philippine Arena

If the ongoing PBA Governors’ Cup Finals between Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and the Meralco Bolts extends to a seventh and deciding game, it will be held at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue on Sunday, the league announced on Thursday afternoon.

The PBA had to search for a new venue for Game 7 after a fire broke out Wednesday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum, forcing the postponement of Game 6 to Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena. That date and venue was originally booked for a possible Game 7.

The Gin Kings lead the series 3-2 and can wrap up their third Governors’ Cup title in the last six years with a win Friday. Should the Bolts win, it will set up the second Governors’ Cup Game 7 between the two teams at the Philippine Arena. Both sides battled for the 2017 Governors’ Cup crown at the massive venue in front of a PBA record crowd of over 54,000 with Ginebra prevailing 101-96.

Meanwhile, a concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum scheduled for Saturday will push through, according to the venue’s official account, which quote tweeted the official Twitter account of the event sponsor that said “there were no damages reported at the venue. We would like to inform everyone that the Dunkin’ presents SB19 Concert that is scheduled on April 23, 2022 will proceed as planned.”

Coliseum management, though, has yet to officially release a statement on the cause of the fire.
