MANILA, Philippines – PBA Commissioner Willy Martial hopes the championship duel between Barangay Ginebra and Meralco will go its full, seven-game distance.

And if the series goes to a Game 7, the league is ready to decide at the Cave Philippine Arena in Bulacan if other normal venues are not available.

“If both Araneta and Mall of Asia are unavailable by then, we will be at the Philippine Arena to make a decision,” Marshall told a pre-final press conference on Monday.

A record 54,086 fans took part in the game at the Philippine Arena when Jean Kings and the Bolts dropped it in the 2017 PBA Governors Cup Nail-Cutting Game 7.

“Genebra vs. Meralco for the bow time. It’s 4.0 Chapter 4, ”he continued. “An epic sage is above us. Two coaches, two champions and a Grand Slam mentor. Great teams too. And the biggest winner? Fans. “

The first game of the series is on Wednesday.

The PBA’s best crowd has so far this season been 13,272 fans since the NLEX and Ginebra allowed full capacity presence during the Game 3 thriller on March 27th.

The Premier Volleyball League drew a record 16,687 fans in Game 2 of the Open Conference semifinals at the Mall of Asia Arena on Sunday, marking the largest crowd during a sporting event in an epidemic era.
