ArenaPlus, the Official Sports Entertainment Gateway of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and its Official Bingo Entertainment Partner, BingoPlus, fully committed to make PBA Season 48 truly exceptional by bringing the entertainment and excitement level of basketball fans to new heights.
The official sportsbook of the PBA hyped up the season for basketball fans by presenting this year’s PBA Annual Leo Awards that recognizes the exceptional players of the previous season. Named after the league’s founding commissioner, Leo Prieto, the Leo 2023 awardees were led by San Miguel’s Junemar Fajardo who received his historic seventh Most Valuable Player Award during the opening ceremonies.
The brand’s very own “AstigGirls” and “BingGirls” joined the opening day entertainment extravaganza that featured young actress Chie Filomeno, boy group Alamat and the rollicking performances of Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola.
Leading up to the PBA opening, ArenaPlus co-presented the PBA Fun Run 2023 last October 22 at Bridgetown Destination Estate in Pasig City. Thousands of fans participated in this interactive event to show support for their favorite PBA teams and to enjoy the authentic PBA experiences at the ArenaPlus booth where they can play games, win prizes, and take home free merchandise as souvenirs.
The brand’s official dance group, the “Astig Girls” provided more fun and high energy at the event. PBA court idols Simon Enciso of the San Miguel Beermen, Jio Jalalon and Abu Tratter of Magnolia Chicken Timplados Hotshots, Rain or Shine Elasto Painters rookie Keith Datu, and Blackwater Bossing coach Jeffrey Cariaso played games with fans at the brand’s booth and ran with their fans on the track.
Following this pre-opening event, BingoPlus and ArenaPlus also provided fun and entertainment at the 2-day PBA Media Day held on October 24-25 at One Esplanade in Pasay City. In a Filipino culture-themed event, all twelve PBA teams gathered in preparation for the season. The GILAS Pilipinas men’s basketball team also attended the event to show support for the competing teams.
D uring the opening, ArenaPlus’ official ambassador, Scottie Thompson of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, expressed his gratitude towards the brand for supporting the PBA and his basketball career.
“We’re truly excited about this PBA season. I feel truly blessed to be part of the ArenaPlus family, which has given me unwavering support for my PBA and GILAS journeys. ArenaPlus is truly committed to working hand in hand with the PBA and to make basketball enjoyable and entertaining for all Filipino fans anytime, anywhere,” Scottie said.
