CHAMPIONS CUP: Bolts set to clash with Mono Vampire
As Philippine representatives via the PBA, the Bolts are in Group B together with defending champion Al-Riyadi of Lebanon, Japanese B.League champion Alvark Tokyo, and hosts Mono Vampire of Thailand.

The draw for the 2018 FIBA Asia Champions Cup is out and safe to say, the Meralco Bolts will have their work cut out for them.

As Philippine representatives via the PBA, the Bolts are in Group B together with defending champion Al-Riyadi of Lebanon, Japanese B.League champion Alvark Tokyo, and hosts Mono Vampire of Thailand.

Mono Vampire chose to join Group B as their bonus for being hosts.

Iran's Petrochimi, KBL's SK Knights, China's Liaoning Flying Leopards, and Taipei's Pauian Archiland make up Group A.

The San Miguel Beermen, by virtue of winning the 2018 Philippine Cup were originally seeded in the 2018 Champions Cup.

However, after what can only be described as a bout of miscommunication, the Bolts ended up taking their place in the tournament set for Sept. 27-Oct. 2 in Nonthaburi, Thailand.
