Expect basketball-crazy Cagayanons and Misamisnons to troop to the venues as two games will be played in Misamis Oriental for the coming PBA Philippine Cup that kicks off on October 11 at the Araneta Coliseum.
While Cagayan de Oro will cap the out-of-town games of Philippine Cup by hosting the encounter between Purefoods and Talk `N Text on December 19.
Ever since the city started hosting provincial games, the PBA has always calendared it to host at least one game per conference as all the games have been jampacked and filled to the rafters. Because the venue such as Xavier University Gym is smaller to the arenas in Manila, tickets are priced higher to offset the cost of bringing the players and officials as well.
But the good thing is they will bring joy to the fans who rarely see PBA games live.
