Video Challenge and International Referees Gettaworn and Pumduan At The #PSLGrandPrix Finals Games

“While we are very satisfied with the performance of our local referees, the participation of guest referees from Thailand would definitely spice up the finals series between Petron and F2 Logistics,” said PSL chairman Philip Ella Juico, adding that they have been inviting foreign referees to officiate the finals of the Grand Prix for the past four years.

“Aside from that, this concept of allowing foreign guest-referees also put the PSL in the community of leagues that strictly adheres to fair play and respect to the sport.”

“All I can say is that Cignal was really eager to beat us,” said Delos Santos admitting that posting 17 consecutive wins had given them a false sense of complacency.

“I always feel that we are complacent. But I always remind the team that Cignal managed to push us to the brink in our two semifinal matches, so definitely F2 Logistics will come out firing as well. Hopefully, that experience will serve as a learning curve for all of us.”

“All I can say is that Cignal was very eager to beat us. Their movement showed that they were eager to win,” said Delos Santos, who is two wins away from sweeping the tournament they first achieved in the All-Filipino Conference in 2015.
