Nineteen teams will compete for top honours in the men’s open category for the You-C1000 Basketball Cup 2022 which begins on June 25. Meanwhile, three teams will battle it out in the women’s open category.

Yesterday, the Brunei Basketball Association released the fixture list with confirmed teams.

In Group ‘A’ defending champions Easyway will be wary of the threat from the dangerous Yi’s Nation. Relatively unknown teams D’Barkad’Z, Chill and Unity are also in the mix.

In Group ‘B’, the battle between dark horses Pegasus, Pegasus, Propel, Fuzhou Shiyyi Association, Fateh Sdn Bhd and last year’s runners-up TK Tea House will make the path to the finals interesting.

In Group ‘C’ Patriots, Tropang FBC, Nuctech and Burger King round off tournament participants.

The top three teams from Group ‘A’ and Group ‘B’ will advance to the quarterfinals while the top two teams from Group ‘C’ will complete the last eight phase.

The final group stage matches are slated to complete on July 13, and the quarterfinals will follow on July 16 and 17.

The semifinals will take place on July 19 and the competition will conclude with the championship game on July 22.

Meanwhile, the teams in the women’s open – Le Doux Patisserie, GHK and Propel Services and Trading – will play in a round robin format with the winner to be decided after two rounds.
