MANILA, Philippines -- Among the games cancelled by the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) is an out-of-town match-up between Barangay Ginebra and Blackwater Elite in Bataan this Saturday.

The league has suspended all of its activities "until further notice" as a precautionary measure amid the rising cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country. 

PBA commissioner Willie Marcial said the game, which was to be held at the Bataan People's Center, will be "re-set" once the Philippine Cup resumes.

"'Yun pa rin ang ticket," he said. "Kung ano 'yung ticket na na-purchase nila, 'yun din ang gagamitin sa susunod."

"Kung kailan kami magse-set, itago lang nila 'yung tickets," he added.

Meanwhile, tickets for Wednesday's cancelled games -- TNT vs. Phoenix and NLEX vs. NorthPort -- are refundable.
