The decision was brought upon the cancellation of Match 15 against Kaya FC-Makati due to non-procurement of a playable stadium.
As stated on the Show Cause response that JP Voltes sent on June 14, 2017, however, JPV sought out to multiple alternative stadiums (Binan Stadium, Rizal Memorial Stadium, and the University of Makati) so that the Match 15 would push through as Marikina Sports Stadium was still undergoing renovation at the time.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, all of the aforementioned stadiums were unavailable for use. Included below is JP Voltes’ Show Cause response for further details.
