2006 SUMMER TOURNAMENT IN REVIEW

From 8 teams in 1 division in the inaugural 2005 season, the MCBL 2006 Summer Tournament drew 13 teams grouped into 2 divisions. The increase in teams and divisions helped create more parity across the league. In the end, the two championships came to down to 4 of the 5 pioneer MCBL teams.

The unpredictability brought about by the general parity among the teams became evident in the Division A semifinals where the top two seeds, Shell and Unilever were defeated by 3rd seeded Petron and 4th seeded NU3 Foods. Like their other two previous matches, the championship went down to the wire again with Petron eventually annexing the title.

Division B saw 7-Eleven complete an amazing turnaround as it went from winless in 2005 to undefeated in 2006. Though their record may suggest dominance over the division, it was anything but that. Three of their elimination round wins against the other semifinalists, Emerson, Soluziona and Ramcar, went into overtime. Staying true to form, the championship match against Emerson went into overtime as well.

For the teams who failed to make the semis, Adidas, E-Data Services, ING Bank, Nestle, and P & G Proctoids, if there’s one thing that you can look forward to is how quickly the MCBL system can work. 7-Eleven, Emerson, and Soluziona who finished 1-2-3 in their division this year after the elimination round all failed to qualify for the semis in 2005.

The 2nd Conference which will begin in September is expecting to draw more teams and divisions once again. With growth, we again expect more to have more parity across the league.

On behalf of Management Partners Group (MPG), I’d like to thank all of you for participating in the 2006 summer tournament. We hope that you can join us again in the 2nd conference and other future MCBL tournaments.


Sincerely yours,


CHIQUI PATERNO
