Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup Chief Operating Officer (COO) Rocky Chan said Wednesday that all the necessary agencies and departments in the region gave their approval to start the bubble tournament.
“They’re allowing us to start on April 9, so it’s a very good development. All the teams are excited. We still need the approval from the Office of the Governor,” said Chan.
“We were actually told that if we get the approval from the different agencies and departments, the Office of the Governor will also allow us, all they need is for us to get these approvals.”
