The three year-old East Asia Super League was born in Macao in 2017 with just eight teams participating in “Super 8”. In 2018 the country was represented for the first time by a PBA D-League selection called the iECO Green Warriors in a 12-team competition which renamed the tournament as “Terrific 12”. Growing bigger by the year, the much awaited toe-to-toe of the top ball clubs in the region has now succeeded at luring top-calibre PBA teams into its orbit.
The ball clubs will be grouped into four brackets with the top team from each group advancing to the semi-finals scheduled on September 21. The finals will be played on September 22 with the champion going home with a USD 150,000 prize. The runner-up will receive USD 100,000 while second runner-up gets USD 50,000.
Fans may also tune into live streams of press conferences, including the Tip-Off press conference (local time 12:00 noon on 17th September) and the Final Four press conference (local time 3:30pm on 20th September) on the various digital platforms to learn more about the competition and the stars of the show.
