With Manila looking at Rizal Memorial Coliseum to become its home court, Quezon City is also checking the possibility at having its new venue.
The Capitals are now negotiating with Ateneo for the use of the Blue Eagle Gym as their home court for the coming Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League.
This was announced by Councilor Onyx Crisologo during the meeting with team owners Wednesday night at the Raffles Hotel in Makati.
“We’re now looking at the Ateneo Blue Eagles gym,”said Crisologo. “Our only concern there is it’s not air conditioned.”
The Blue Eagles Gym was used as an alternate venue of the UAAP basketball tournament.
Zaldy Realubit, head of operations of the MPBL, told Councilor Crisologo that they will make an ocular inspection.
“Nakalaro na ako dati dyan sa Blue Eagles OK naman siya,” added Realubit. “But we will make an ocular to check its condition.”
