first_imgLacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go? The Asia League has two tournaments, the Super 8 in July and the Terrific 12 in September but Beyer sees more chance for growth for the Super 8 since the month of July coincides with the offseason of many of the Asian associations.“This could be the biggest offseason party for the teams. There will be concerts, a roster of foreign players, tons of media, the games will be broadcast over 30 platforms.”Beyer, however, won’t just send out invitations left and right. He wants to ensure that there will be a competitive balance and would target the teams who are in the upper echelon of its respective leagues.His method of inviting teams to play for the Asia League takes a similar cue to the one UEFA imposes for the Champions League where only the top teams from each domestic leagues—in the case of England, Germany, and Spain the top four are selected for the 2018-2019 tournament.Beyer added that in the event that the Super 8 expands to 32 teams, the teams will play in a double round-robin group stage featuring home and away games.ADVERTISEMENT But it’s not only domestic leagues, with the ASEAN Basketball League breaking ground in 2009 and becoming a platform for the Southeast Asian region to bolster ties through basketball.Then in 2017, the Asia League was born to give a venue for professional teams across Asia to face against each other in a high-level competition.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’CEO Matt Beyer has bold hopes for his brainchild.
