GAB chairman Mitra talks pro sports at PSC sports summit

GAMES and Amusements Board (GAB) chairman Abraham Mitra is the resource person on “Professional Sports in the Philippines,” the topic for the 12th virtual session of the Philippine Sports Commission’s (PSC) national summit on Wednesday.

The GAB head will talk about directives and limitations of the agency as the government arm mandated to regulate and supervise professional sports and games, and to prevent illegal booking and gambling activities connected to any professional sports.

Mr. Mitra, who was a former legislator at the House of Representatives, is also expected to touch on their experience as part of a tripartite group, along with the PSC and Department of Health, tasked to create a joint order — Joint Administrative Order No. 2020-0001 — which governs the conduct of sporting activities, including the training resumption of the Philippine Team, during this time of the pandemic.

“We would like to thank Chairman Mitra for accepting our invitation. This is a good opportunity for our participants to have an in-depth understanding of professional sports and how it is different from what we do here in PSC for amateur sports.” said PSC Chairman William Ramirez.

The online PSC summit is aimed at taking insights of different sports stakeholders and using them as foundations in crafting a sustainable and workable short to long-term plan for Philippine sports.

The PSC said all data gathered from the web series will be processed and studied to create a new set of resolutions to be presented to sports leaders for action.
