2 minute read

The club who will rule the ongoing 2022 PBA Philippine Cup will be in up for a tough task in the East Asia Super League in October as it will be bunched in Group A composed of powerhouse squads.

The team will be pitted against newly-crowned PLeague+ champion Taipei Fubon Braves in the inaugural home-and-away season alongside Korean Basketball League (KBL) runner-up Anyang KGC and Japan B. League’s counterpart Ryukyu Golden Kings.

Completing Group B, meanwhile, are the Seoul SK Knights (Korea), Utsonomiya Brex (Japan), Bay Area Dragons (Hong Kong), and the Philippine Cup runner-up.

The PBA and EASL held an official draw on Tuesday at Shangri-La The Fort.

Tournament format will have the eight teams divided into two groups of four and will play a home-and-away game within its group for a total of six matches per team.

The top two teams in each group will advance to the semifinals with the two surviving clubs clashing for the championship and the $1 million prize money. 

“Come October 12 the dream is over, everything becomes a reality,” said EASL CEO and co-founder Matt Beyer who presided over the draw.
