There are so many basketball aficionados that had hesitations on the league that will form by Senator Manny Pacquiao. But despite of this, wow, it becomes emerged on new heights by opening it only last week of January featuring the teams from the cities within Luzon and NCR area, for the meantime. Pacquiao has a clear vision on how this league will run by deploying some formats (of course, there are some changes) that will benefit the fans who are looking for new flavor of Pinoy brand of basketball. 

 

Right now, in their official Facebook page, it records a total of 60k likes and followings. 

 

I'm hoping for the best on MPBL. They should more rely on their motto " Liga ng Bawat Pilipino" to make every city happy. 

 

By the way, here are the pioneer cities incorporated with their respective sponsors:

 

  • Bataan Defenders BaiShipping

 

  • Batangas Tanduay Athletics

 

  • Bulacan Kuyas Ligo Sardines

 

  • Caloocan Supremos Longrich 

 

  • Imus Bandera-Glc Trucks & Equipments

 

  • Muntinlupa Cagers Angeli's Resort

 

  • Navotas Clutch Big J Sports

 

  • Parañaque Patriots Yakimix

 

  • Quezon City Capitals Royal MNL (Manila is proper pronounciation)

 

  • Valenzuela Classic  Yulz

As much as I hate Pac on politics side, I would give props to the man for establishing a league like this.

I hope they can become more successful and not fade like the MBA.

Honestly, I'm worrying to PBA right now in terms of crowd attendance. Kahit nag iba na ng leadership, and binaba ng konti ang ticket price sa mga venues, wala siyang impact. 

 

Maybe this is the proper time to shift to city versus city rivalries in order to have this league stay alive a little longer. 

 

MPBL is an opened-eye for the basketball fans. 

 

Maybe Marcial should check this kind of setup.

Yung Maharlika ligang pang baranggay hehehe inilapit sa masa... alam mo nman ang pinoy basta may larong basketball at mura ticket at possible pang libre eh manonood yan!

 

nakatuwa na rin na yung mga nsabing laos na PBA players eh naglalaro pa rin sa ligang ito.

 

maganda yung konsepto... pero ang tanong lng eh can this league survive? ilang taon lng ba itinagal ng MBL 4 years due to financial problem nagisa-isang nalagas yung mga teams!

If this league wants to live long, MPBL should learn lessons from MBA's mistakes.
Kudos to Pacman for financially backing up this up-and-coming basketball league.

IMHO, ang naging mali ng MBA noon is they tried to compete with the PBA instead of trying to discover talents from their home province to prepare them for the big league which is the PBA

Another reason why MBA folded is due to removing the maximum salary cap of players.

Still a work in progress. For now, I don't see people (especially the paying class) going to the games. Has lots of potential though.

Lots of Ex PBA players here.

 

Gary David plays for Bataan

Val Acuna plays for Batangas (currently flawless 6-0)

 

di to kaya gayahin ng PBA, unang una, konti lang ang teams, at hindi mo basta basta pwede paglaruin ang mga players sa mga so so playing courts, remember, may investments ang mga companies sa kanila so safety ang priority lalo na pag may import. Babayad ka pa ng hotel, tapos travel expenses kada laro. masyadong magastos to para sa PBA teams. Considering kung gano kalaki ang sahod ng mga players sa PBA kumpara sa mga sahod dito sa MPBL

 

ang kailangan ng PBA para magmura ang tiket at dumugin ng tao ay sariling venue/court. hindi yung kada games iba iba, pag sariling court na pwede na magmura ang tiket kasi hindi na sila babayd ng upa sa gahaman na si MVP. 

 

Dapat nga SMC corp ang mag finance ng sariling court ng PBA, tutal SMC teams lalo na BGSM lang ang may kayang mag hakot ng fans sa venue.

of course i expect mo na full pack ang venue lalo na pag maglalaro ang home team.

compare mo naman sa tickets sa PBA, pinakamahal lang na tiket sa MPBL ay 100 pesos, magtataka ka pa ba bakit mas full pack ito sa PBA? lol

 

pag empleyado pa ng munisipyo at kamaganak ng team management libre ang tiket. mapupuno talaga yan

yun nga sinasabi ko.. kaya hindi pwede i compare sa PBA.

 

subukan mong i libre din ang tiket o gawing 100pesos ang presyo pag hindi laging puno din yang PBA

Wow! Ginawa nila 'yun? Without a big corp. supporting a team back then, (except maybe sa Laguna Lakers/Air21) talagang mahihirapan ang isang team to sustain a season, kaya sa bawat taon ng MBA pabawas ng pabawas ang teams sa MBA noon

From WIKIPEDIA.

 

The MBA was played its first game on March 7, 1998 at the Don Narciso Ramos Sports Complex in Lingayen, Pangasinan[1] Unlike the Philippine Basketball Association, in which teams represent companies, the MBA teams represented a particular city, province or island in the country. The league brought basketball closer to the people, and it raided the PBA for talent.

The MBA was widely viewed as broadcast giant ABS-CBN's attempt to undermine the PBA after failing to snatch its broadcast rights in 1998.

Metroball allowed foreigners to play for their teams, not requiring Philippine passports of them, nor requiring those foreigners to have Filipino blood. All the league required was that these players be born in the Philippines.

As a direct result of this practice, the MBA and its foreign-born players began attracting attention away from the PBA, forcing the PBA to escalate their own players' salaries and practically rendering the PBA draft useless through a "direct hiring" process.

This allowed PBA teams like Talk 'N Text and Tanduay to negotiate directly with MBA players or MBA prospects (like Asi Taulava and Sonny Alvarado) for their services.

However, the league folded on July 26, 2002 due to extremely high expenses on funding a regional basketball league, and most especially when broadcast partner ABS-CBN withdrew funding for the league. Several players went to the semi-professional Philippine Basketball League en route to the PBA.

 

- In short, mas malaki expenses ng MBA versus kita sa games at advertising. Una sa lahat, studio 23 pinapalabas, eh sa province malabo ang studio 23 nuon at yung ibang tv nga de pihit pa hanggang ch. 13 lang - wala pang tv plus at di pa uso internet at cable. So ang baba ng marketing value.

- 2nd, ang mura ng tiket, kami nga dati pag may laro provincial team namin libre kami bigay ng tropa namin na konsehal. So wala ka din profit na makukuha sa ticket sales.

 

titiklop talga hanggang walang kita, kaya walang revenue na bumabalik sa mga teams, unlike sa PBA. So mahirap talaga mag sustain ng isang regional basketball league. Kahit ako mas gusto ko yung parang NBA na home and away format tulad ng MBA dati, pero aminin natin, iba pa rin ang PBA. (Lalo na ngayon na nag chachampion ulit ang Ginebra)
