At least 10 teams will join the forthcoming Sinclair Paints Basketball Super League which is set to unfold here in Zamboanga City next month.

This was disclosed by SBP Area Coordinator and Trustee and Super League coordinator Pedro Alfaro Jr. after the green light was given recently in Manila by top basketball officials and main sponsor Sinclair Paints.

Alfaro said the tournament will be actually an Under-22 category cluster eliminations and will adopt an open policy in terms of team participation.

Alfaro has been tapped by organizers to coordinate the Sinclair Paints Super League in the city with no less than 2nd District 2 Rep. Erbie A. Fabian agreeing to be a major backer of the tourney.

This will be the first time that the Sinclair Paints Super League Basketball tourney will be staged in Zamboanga City and will become a cluster elimination for the teams participating.

Alfaro, who is also president of the local SBP affiliate, the Federacion Baketbolista de Zamboanga or FBZ, said invitations have already been sent to nearby provinces of Sibugay, Tawi-Tawi, Basilan, the cities of Dipolog and Pagadian and the municipality of Sindangan apart from invited teams from Zamboanga City.

Alfaro also announced that Cong. Fabian has also agreed to sponsor and manage two local teams to the super league slated for March 2 to April 22 with the regional finals slated thereafter.

He added the local coordinating body here is now in the process of firming up the composition of teams and awaiting confirmation of the regional invites so it can proceed with the scheduling of the games.

Alfaro said venue of the games will be announced later.
