For 10 straight years, Philippines’ independent petroleum corporations Filoil and Flying V have joined forces to sponsor the annual Filoil Flying V Preseason Premier Cup.

The basketball tournament in 2016, which ran from April 29 to June 12 at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City, showcased the strength and caliber of the country’s budding players from different colleges and universities.  Majority of the games were carried live on television via ABSCBN Sports Channel.

Aside from standing as one of the sports events’ major sponsors, Flying V also gave away prizes for each game’s “Defensive Player of the Game” and the tournament’s “Defensive Player of the Season.”

Sixteen teams clashed to bag the coveted championship trophy for the Senior and Junior divisions.  The De La Salle University senior and San Beda College junior teams won respectively. 

Both Filoil and Flying V’s support to this annual basketball tournament highlighted the companies’ commitment of encouraging the youth to engage in sports.
