The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) has announced that the bleacher seats of the San Juan Arena will be free to the public to watch Kia playing coach Manny Pacquiao on his last game on Saturday before flying to Los Angeles to prepare for his megafight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
PBA media bureau chief Willie Marcial said the seats will be on a first-come, first-served basis since the upper section of the venue can only accommodate around 2,000 people.
After Saturday's game vs Blackwater, the Carnival will have five more games left on their schedule before the postseason begins. The team is on a winning streak after defeating powerhouse teams Purefoods and Talk N' Text.
Pacquiao believes that his team will step up despite his absence in their future matches.
He also motivated his team by promising a great reward if their play will yield to more wins.
"May additional bonus pa aside from the normal bonus," he said.
Pacquiao is set to fight Mayweather at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 2.
