LG Electronics Brings to the Philippines an Asian Basketball Showdown

Wazzup Pilipinas!

September 9, 2014 will become an epic basketball battle between the finest basketball team from Korea against the Philippines' very own. It's Korea's Changwon LG Sakers versus Barangay Ginebra San Miguel team for an Asian Basletball Showdown that will be held at the Araneta Coliseum.

This event is being brought to us by global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, mobile communications and home appliances, LG Electronics, as announced last September 4, 2014 at the Treston International College gym in Bonifacio Global City.

LG Electronics also extended the joy of playing the basketball sport to the children of the charitable institution Manila Boys Town where the organizers repaired their broken-down basketball court and donated entertainment and kitchen products. The Manila Boys Town is an institution for the underprivileged, abandoned, neglected, abused and voluntarily surrendered children, teenagers and senior citizens of Metro Manila.

Present at the presscon panel was Olsen Racela, a retired Filipino professional basketball player that was a member of the San Miguel franchise carrying the Petron Blaze Boosters brand in the PBA. Jeff Cariaso, a Filipino professional basketball player and coach and also the current head coach of the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, was also there. Jillian Lichauco, Marketing Communications Manager at LG Electronics also was part of the panel along with Korea's Kim Jin, Ki Seungho, Kim Younghwan, and Kim Sire.

LG opened the Asian Basketball Showdown to all basketball-loving pinoys for free. Those who signed up at the LG Eletronics Facebook page started redeeming their tickets last September 5 until 7 from LG Mobile concept stores.

Plus more surprises awaits as those who will be watching the game live will also get the chance to win premium devices from LG Electronics.

Korean basketball legend Shin Dong Pa is also expected to grace the basketball showdown at the big dome.
