Master, the country’s leading men’s skin care and face care brand, launched the Master Game Face All-Star Basketball Challenge 2014 where they introduced the all-star team of two basketball superstars of this generation – Chris Tiu and Marc Pingris. The launch was held at the Treston Int’l College Gym in Bonifacio Global City last April 24, 2014. The game, which features stand-outs from the collegiate leagues (UAAP and NCAA), top players from the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and the Gilas National Team, will surely be an exciting match.
Under the helm of former Ateneo Blue Eagles and SEA Games team captain and current Rain or Shine player Chris Tiu are UAAP basketball stars Jeron Teng (DLSU), Chris Newsome (ADMU), Kevin Ferrer (UST) and Mike Tolomia (FEU), while current Gilas Pilipinas player and PBA defensive play legend Marc Pingris is also set to lead UAAP stars Andre Paras (UP), Jeoffrey Javillonar (NU), Jericho Cruz (ADU) and Roi Sumang (UE). His team will also include professional basketball players and selected collegiate players. Fans of Marc Pingris’ team can show their support online by using the hashtag #MasterGameFaceMarc and fans of Chris can use#MasterGameFaceChris online.
“I’m excited to start playing with my team. We hope to put up a great game against our opponents and to show young athletes how to put their Game Faces on with Master. Gusto ko talagang magpasalamat ako sa binigay na opportunity sa akin (I really want to thank for all the opportunities that were given to me) and for me like me laking province and nagtiwala sila (Master) sa akin, so blessing talaga, (And for me who like grew up in the province and they trusted me is a real blessing to me)” said Marc.
“My challenge for my team members is to go hard to win the game. To try to win the game because Marc and I have a personal history and I need to get even with the score,” said Chris.
“As the no. 1 male face care, male facial wash and face cleanser brand in the country, it is natural for us to come up with an activity featuring the no. 1 sport – basketball. We are proud to invite fans to the Araneta Center on June 21 for the Master Game Face All-Star Basketball Challenge, where Master ambassadors Chris Tiu and Marc Pingris will battle for an epic showdown with their respective squads of top collegiate hoops players and all-star players from the Gilas team and professional basketball groups. It will be a good venue to showcase how top Filipino basketball players put their oil-free game faces on with Master Oil Control Max Facial Wash,” said Unilever’s Male Grooming Brand Manager Jonathan Pua.
Along with the unveiling of the starting five players, Master also announced the launch of an online app for basketball fans to vote from a selection of all-star players from the professional league to join Team Chris and Team Marc. Fans can vote by logging on tofacebook.com/MasterPhilippines and by clicking on the Master Game Face application. The online voting will begin on April 24 and the complete team rosters will be announced on a special draft to be held on May 31.
“We’re also counting on the fans to help us build the teams by voting for their choice players through the Master Game Face voting app. Lucky fans who will vote for the correct and final set of players will win tickets to the all-star match, as well as special basketball merchandise,” said Pua.
