Here's how to witness FIBA World Cup games live for as low as P999

The last time the Philippines hosted the FIBA World Cup was in 1978. It was still called the FIBA World Championship then.

It took almost five decades to bring back the tournament here in the Philippines, and several NBA stars are expected to bless the country with their presence as the top 32 basketball teams in the world go against each other in the quadrennial meet. That's why it's much better to witness this historical event live as this could be a once-in-a-lifetime moment for basketball-crazy Pinoys.

The good news is ticket prices won't put a dent on your bank statement. In fact, a Day Pass lets you watch a double-header for P999. That's two world-class games for less than a thousand bucks.

The Day Pass will be available on Thursday, May 25, at 6:00 p.m. Bookmark this link now so you won't get run out of these limited tickets. Or you can just go ahead, open your browser, and type: philippines.worldcup.basketball

The must-see FIBA World Cup is expected to be a generation-defining moment. There's also the revenge tour of Team USA, who's coming off a dismal 7th-place finish in the 2019 edition. 

Of course, Pinoy fans expect only great things from Gilas Pilipinas. The national team is grouped with Angola, Dominican Republic, and Italy in Group A, and pundits are optimistic of Gilas' chances.

No Gilas pool has been announced yet and there's also the dilemma of choosing between Justin Brownlee and Jordan Clarkson.

All of those will unravel in the months to come until the FIBA World Cup in August.

Don't miss the action and witness history live!
