Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) has announced its continuation as the main sponsor for the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) in its 2020 season.
The PBA has announced the Philippine Cup resumption, which was postponed last March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This move was approved by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Emerging Infectious Diseases as it released a provisional approval for the league’s “bubble” plans in Quest Hotel in Pampanga.
The “bubble” concept sees the teams staying at designated areas in the hotel, with playing venues assigned elsewhere. Doubleheader games will be held every day at the Angeles University Foundation Gym with the first game starting at 4pm, disinfection measures at 6pm, and the second game scheduled at 7pm.
Previously, HPI also supported and sponsored the local telecast of the NBA since it resumed its 74th season last August 21.
