Alab Pilipinas should be playing in front of a nice home crowd when it opens its 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League season on Sunday.
Free tickets to the Alab Pilipinas vs. Hong Kong Eastern game have been "sold out" according to sports agent Charlie Dy.
With a highly-anticipated matchup against the reigning ABL champions, Alab decided to treat its fans by making its home-opener free and safe to say, this was a great move.
For a team that travels a lot for its home games, Alab Pilipinas should have a different atmosphere for this one at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Coached by Jimmy Alapagm Alab will parade MVP Ray Parks, Dondon Hontiveros, and Josh Urbiztondo among others this season. The team will be reinforced by Ivan Johnson and Reggie Okosa.
Hong Kong meanwhile, will play Christian Standhardinger, San Miguel Beer's top pick in the 2017 PBA Draft.
