MANILA, Philippines — Games and Amusements Board (GAB) Chairman Baham Mitra is confident for the success of the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 bubble tournament at the Inspire Sports Academy in Calamba, Laguna after a smooth test run the other day.

“I’m impressed with the preparations being done by Chooks-to-Go. They did not just meet the requirements but also improved on their submitted safety protocols,” said Mitra, who was joined by Chooks owner Ronald Mascariñas and commissioner Eric Altamirano in observing the dry run.

Included in Chooks’ stern bubble protocols are the mandatory polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test before every leg and antigen test before the players head back to their respective rooms.

There will also be a required GET Philippines’ tracing app for each player to be presented every game before their mandatory disinfection and temperature checks apart from the disciplined enter-and-exit set-up from the playing court and waiting rooms.

Chooks-to-Go is eyeing Oct. 2 as its tentative opener for the five-leg President’s Cup, which Mascariñas considers as a welcome development for Philippine sports amid the crisis.
