CHOOKS-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 has found a new ally in staging the first professional 3x3 basketball league in the country.
TM has stepped up to be the league's partner for the upcoming 2020 season starting in the President's Cup which is pencilled to start this October.
"TM is one with the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 President’s Cup in championing the talents of our local players and bringing them to the international stage," said Kristelle Dizon, Globe VP for Consumer Mobile Business.
"We continue to look for ways to help rekindle the passion of fans for basketball games by supporting Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 President’s Cup online. This will allow fans to watch and support their favorite teams while staying safe at home."
This will be the first foray of TM in Philippine basketball, and what better way for it for the telecommunications company than rolling out the carpet for the staging of the newly professional 3x3 league.
"We are glad to have a partner in TM that shares the same vision as ours -- to help bring the Filipino athlete to the global stage," said Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 league owner Ronald Mascarinas, who sealed the deal with Globe Telecom president and CEO Ernest Cu.
Twelve teams will see action in the President's Cup, with Zamboanga City Family's Brand Sardines, led by national 3x3 team members Joshua Munzon and Alvin Pasaol, the clear frontrunner.
Completing the roster of teams are Uling Roasters-Butuan City, Bacolod-Master Sardines, Nueva Ecija Rice Vanguards, Palayan City Capitals, Porac Big Boss Cement Green Gorillas, Zamboanga Peninsula Valientes MLV, Bicol 3x3 Pro, Pasig Sta.
