PHOENIX Petroleum continues its rise as the world of sports takes a new turn with the formal launch of Spin.ph.
The fastest-growing independent oil company in the Philippines, Phoenix Petroleum helps provide a lift as Spin.ph, which in a short period risen has become the top Philippine sports portal, is formally launched on Thursday at URBN Bar & Kitchen at The Fort.
Phoenix Petroleum had earlier partnered with SPIN.ph for the coverage of the first-ever NBA preseason game in the Philippines and is continuing its support of the first and only full-staff standalone sports website in the country.
Phoenix Petroleum entered a multi-year partnership with the NBA and is the official fuel partner of the NBA in the Philippines.
As part of the partnership with the NBA, 50 cage fans from across the country were picked by Phoenix to see the match between the Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers on Oct. 10 at the MOA Arena for free.
It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the fans to see two NBA title contenders slug it out, with All-Star guard James Harden and the Rockets pulling off a 116-96 win over the Pacers.
Since starting in 2005, Phoenix has been involved in various environmental programs and charity events such as relief efforts for victims of calamities, but has also been an ardent backer of sports.
Phoenix Petroleum noted that is supportive of sports, particularly basketball, because of its massive appeal to the market. The petroleum company has been supporting various out-of-town tournaments and top school-based basketball players in south like the Davao Champions League.
