GAB to hold virtual professional sports summit this weekend

THE Games and Amusements Board (GAB) is set to hold the Second Professional Sports Summit on Saturday, Dec. 5.

Done via Zoom Teleconferencing to adapt to the existing conditions with the coronavirus pandemic, the one-day virtual event, with the theme “Leadership in Crisis,” will gather anew experts and stakeholders to discuss various matters geared towards shoring up different facets of the local professional sports scene.

The summit will be divided into two parts, with the morning session focusing on different topics related to boxing rules, mental health, and laws related to professional sports, among others.

In the afternoon, there will be a live session, where different sports icons and national leaders are expected to attend and share their thoughts and experiences.

Senator Sonny Angara, who is also the chairman of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP), is expected to be back in this year’s edition of the summit.

Invitations were also extended to Sen. Bong Go, chairman of the Senate Committee on Sports; Sen. Joel Villanueva and Sen. Manny Pacquiao.

Some of the country’s sports icons such as former world boxing champion Gerry Peñalosa, pool legends Efren “Bata” Reyes and Django Bustamante, Asia’s first Grandmaster Eugene Torre, and former Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Best Import Sean Chambers will also be gracing the event.

The summit comes at a time where professional sports is trying to get back on track after being sidelined for months by the pandemic.

Since October, leagues like the PBA, Chooks-to-Go 3×3 Pilipinas and Philippines Football League have successfully resumed activities but operated under strict health and safety protocols that GAB and other regulating and government bodies crafted. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
