Isuzu PH supports Superliga
ISUZU Philippines Corporation supports sports anew with its recent contract signing with the 2018 Philippine SuperLiga.
One of the premier volleyball leagues in the Philippines, the PSL opened its 2018 GrandPrix Conference last February and will run till May 2018. The first volleyball club league in the country is recognized by both the Asian Volleyball Confederation and the International Volleyball Federation; and is likewise sanctioned by the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas Inc.
Present during the memorandum of agreement signing were IPC Vice President for Sales Yasuhiko Oyama and PSL Board of Directors Ariel Paredes and Ginio Panganiban.
“Since 2010, Isuzu has been an avid supporter of sports—starting with our Isuzu D-MAX Cycling team. We evolved and recently supported a local football club and a Cebu-based triathlon team. The PSL has been around since 2013 and currently is the leading volleyball league outside the collegiate level—we are proud to be part of this year’s league,” Oyama said.
“Our products, specially the D-MAX and the mu-X are ideal for sport enthusiasts since it can carry multiple passengers and has an ample space for their equipment,” he added.
The Isuzu-PSL partnership will not only cover the 2018 PSL GrandPrix but also the succeeding conferences like the PSL All-Filipino Conference, Invitational Conference, and the much-awaited Beach Volleyball Challenge Cup.
“We are very happy to have Isuzu as our partner this year. The brand has been actively supporting sports in the country and with their strong brand presence we will be able to further promote the league to different key cities this year,” Paredes said.
Meanwhile, Cignal seeks to sustain a blazing start when it collides with Sta. Lucia Realty in the Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga Grand Prix today at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan.
Game time is at 7 p.m., with the HD Spikers looking to tighten their grip at the second spot of this prestigious women’s club tourney backed by Isuzu, Rebisco and UCPB Gen with ESPN5 as broadcast partner.
Smart, meanwhile, guns for the elusive first victory when it tangles with reigning champion F2 Logistics in the 4:15 p.m. appetizer of this league that also has Senoh, Mikasa, Asics, Grand Sport and LGR as technical sponsors.
