Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) recently entered into an agreement to support the 2018 Philippine SuperLiga (PSL), one of the country’s premiere volleyball leagues. PSL is the country’s first volleyball league to be recognized by both the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVF) and the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB), and is also sanctioned by the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI).
The Isuzu-PSL partnership will cover the recently opened 2018 GrandPrix Conference which runs from February until May, as well as succeeding PSL conferences like their ALL-Filipino Conference, Invitational Conference and their popular Beach Volleyball Challenge Cup.
Officiating the signing of the Isuzu-PSL agreement were IPC Vice President for Sales Yasuhiko Oyama and PSL Board Directors Ariel Paredes and Ginio Panganiban.
Oyama said: “Since 2010, Isuzu has been an avid supporter of sports – staring 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.” He added that, “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.”
In reply, Paredes said, “we are very happy to have Isuzu as our partner this year.” He added that, “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.”
