Teams can now include two foreign-born Filipino players in their rosters in the next season of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League, its officials said on Thursday.

League founder and CEO Manny Pacquiao confirmed the change, but they should not stand more than 6-foot-4, according to a report on FoxSports.PH.

MPBL commissioner Kenneth Duremdes added that the two players cannot be on the court at the same time.
