Suzuki Scooters’ back for the 2nd season of the 2024 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League

Suzuki Philipines Incorporated returned as the official motorcycle partner of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) for the second consecutive year. This partnership between a powerhouse brand and the MPBL also known as “Liga ng Bawat Pilipino”, strengthens the latter’s mission of discovering and developing exceptional basketball players across the country. With that, Suzuki Scooters take center stage as the flag bearers of the brand, perfectly complementing the fast-paced action on the court. Team Suzuki joined the MPBL as it tipped off its 2024 season at the Calasiao Sports Complex in Pangasinan on Saturday, April 6, 2024. The roar of the crowd and the heart pumping action on the basketball court marked the electrifying return of professional basketball action.

The opening ceremony, hosted by the province of Pangasinan, a new addition to the MPBL family this season, was a fitting start to another exciting season. Thirty teams, including three exciting newcomers – the Abra Weavers, Pangasinan Heatwaves, and Tarlac United Force – gear up to battle it out for the coveted championship title. The Pampanga Giant Lanterns, reigning champions and North Division victors of the previous season, will be a formidable force to contend with.

Dignitaries gracing the event included MPBL Founder Senator Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, Commissioner Kenneth Duremdes, Board Member Joseph Ramos, Marketing Head Seth Jamora, Pangasinan Governor Ramon Guico III, Calasiao Pangasinan Mayor Kevin Roy Macanlalay and La Paz, Abra Mayor Joseph Bernos. They were joined by Suzuki Philippines’ Marketing Communications Group Head Ms. Edelyn Yanilla, Product Marketing and Data Group Head Ms. Victoria Caringal and Field Marketing Group Head Mr. Johnny De Guzman.

Suzuki Philippines will also bring more fun to the live games with the thrilling half-court shootout competition. Three participants will be trying their luck to shoot the ball to win a brand new Suzuki Avenis each game. In addition, customers can also check out Suzuki’s latest scooters on display with special promos when bought during the event.
