Middle East Filipinos

Barangay Ginebra vs. Purefoods in Dubai

Posted by Admin on February 28, 2007

I’m an avid fan of Philippine basketball that’s why when the Philippines did not send a basketball team in the Doha Asian Games last December 2006 because of FIBA ban, I feel bad to our basketball officials. They are only thinking their own interest and not considering the joy it will give to basketball crazy OFWs not only in the Middle East but also in the whole world. However, this ban was already lifted and this is good news for Filipino basketball aficionados in Middle East.

Another good news for basketball bans particularly in Dubai is the staging of a game between the newly-crowned Philippine Cup champion Barangay Ginebra and my ever favorite Purefoods on April 13, 2006 at Al Ahli Sports Club. This will be the first time in PBA league history that a game will be held in Dubai. Manila Bulletin gives more details on this news.
