Panama to Play Season in a Bubble

Panama will begin their season on October 9 with eight teams. All eight teams opened their training camps this past Monday, September 14. Players were tested and there were no positive results. During the season it is anticipated there will be another 1,400 tests.

The eight teams have been broken out into two groups. Group A will be composed of Cocle, Metro, Herrera and Colon. Group B will be Bocas del Toro, Chiriqui, Panama Oeste and Los Santos. Each team will play a round robin match against teams in their group three times and against teams from the other group once. The top four teams will advance to a best of seven semi-final series.

Though it was not stated in the WBSC article myworld assumes the winner will advance to the Series del Caribe, provided there is one and Panama is invited to participate. Panama won the first Series del Caribe they played in two years ago but did not do so well in the event last year.
