A joint effort of Argentina and Uruguay was the country’s last rival for the hosting rights. The Philippines last hosted the World Cup in 1978 and last made the tournament in 2014, when the country made a spirited run back to the world stage that started in the 2013 Fiba Asia in Manila.That’s why the SBP made sure it would make a strong final push for the 2023 hosting. Aside from Pangilinan, Rep. Pia Cayetano and SBP president Al Panlilio also spoke before Fiba officials to make a passionate plea for the hosting rights.“If they want growth to the next level for Fiba, the region they should bring the next World Cup [to] is Southeast Asia,” Panlilio earlier said. “It’s aligned to what Fiba wants to do for basketball.”ADVERTISEMENT Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?
