BACK IN THE GAME
To the Pinoy sports fan, the name Cebuana Lhuillier is synonymous to sports. We have been in the heart of local sports happenings for many years now. Name it and we have one way or another been part of it - at the forefront as tournament organizer, as an active sponsor or as a benefactor and number one cheerleader to our athletes.
So it comes as no surprise that we are back in the most famous and loved sports arena in the country - the basketball court.
It has been full circle for Cebuana Lhuillier and local basketball. Several years back, we were part of the Philippine Amatuer Basketball League (PABL), the precursor of the Philippine Basketball League (PBL) in the 80's and 90's; we forayed next to the Metropolitan Basketball Association (MBA) as Cebu Gems from 1998 to 2000; most recently, we supported the national men's basketball team in 2003. We exited the basketball arena in the national stage, proudly punctuating our basketball involvement with a gold medal finish in the 22nd Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam by our RP - Cebuana Lhuillier Men's Basketball Team.
And as we continue our basketball journey, we asked you," ngayong 2006, asan na ang bola?" Yes, we are making a comeback in local basketball!
Our CEBUANA LHUILLIER - PERA PADALA team will see action in the upcoming PBL Silver Cup, going up against some of the country's powerhouse cage squads. Our return to the PBL is like coming back home. We are back home in the court where we once conquered and slam-dunked our way into the hearts of the millions of basketball loving Pinoys. While our team is relatively new, they will not be lacking in inspiration, as they only have to look back to our rich basketball history.
Indeed, Cebuana Lhuillier is back in the game! And back to the hearts of the millions of Pinoy basketball fans!
