The Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) is coming to ABS-CBN S+A.

With the contract signed Wednesday, the two parties are officially in business to broadcast games this year.

Based on the agreement, Maharlika Pilipinas games can be viewed live on TV via S+A channel 23 Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

"We would like to thank Sports and Action and ABS-CBN for this. There's a lot of talent na mabibigyan ng chance," league commissioner Kenneth Duremdes said.

The MPBL will open at Araneta Coliseum on January 25.

All MPBL games will feature a home-and-away format similar to the old Metropolitan Basketball Association.
