Alaska set to leave the PBA after 35 years
One of the PBA’s most fabled franchise is throwing in the towel.
In a stunning development, the Alaska Aces announced on its Facebook page that the 2021 Governors’ Cup will be its last in the league.
“After more than three decades of basketball, 14 titles, and a grand slam, it is with a heavy heart that Alaska Milk Corporation (AMC) announces the retirement of its Alaska Aces team from the PBA,” the team said in a statement.
“We thought long and hard before making this final decision. However, we believe that this will allow us to focus our resources on providing affordable nutrition for Filipino families,” said Uytengsu.
Below is the team’s full statement.
