Emil’s Cup heads to 10th season bigger and better

CEBU, Philippines - This year’s edition of the Emil’s Fresh Chicken Cup inter-commercial basketball tournament promises to be bigger and better as it marches towards its 10th season set to kick off on July 23 at the Minglanilla Sports Complex.

Five weeks into its scheduled opening, tournament organizer Mickey Oberes said during an organizational meeting the other day at Cebu Grand Convention Center that five teams have already confirmed their participation in their annual hardcourt spectacle.

Led by two-time defending champion Team Samsam Gullas, Oberes said the early birds also include ASPA Scaffolding, ARQ Builders, Abrenica Engineering and Riss Lending.

Oberes added they are also inviting ballclubs from San Remigio, Bogo and Toledo to take part  in their week-long tilt that offers close to P200,000 in cash prize to the top three winners.

“We’re targeting actually a total of eight teams. We’re now on our 10th year and we want to make the tournament bigger and better compared to the previous years,” said Oberes.

The tournament format will depend on the number of entries.
