Willie Marcial appointed as PBA commissioner

MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATED) After serving as the officer-in-charge of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) for over a month, Willie Marcial has been appointed as the league's commissioner.

PBA chairman Ricky Vargas made the announcement on Thursday afternoon at the league office in Libis, following the first monthly meeting of the PBA Board in 2018.


Marcial was given a three-year term, and will still remain as the league's media director. He formally replaced the embattled Chito Narvasa, who resigned from his post on December 17, just ahead of the opening of the new PBA season.

"We are happy for Willie, and we wish him well," said Vargas, who added that there were no objections to Marcial's appointment.

Marcial was named the PBA's OIC upon Narvasa's resignation last month, and he made an immediate impact on the league.
