On the photo released by UNTV Cup through their Facebook page, it shows that 13 government agencies are included on the list of basketball teams, which are set to play for this season. And for the first time, the BOC is one of the newest teams that joined the line-up. BOC’s basketball team is dubbed as the “Transformers”.
The UNTV Cup management is yet to announce or release formally any information on the final set of teams that will play for this season. Hence, UNTV Cup Season 5’s opening game will be held on August 29, at 7:30 p.m., at SM MOA Arena in Pasay City.
The other 12 teams who will be playing with the BOC are: MMDA Blackwolves, NHA Builders, AFP Cavaliers, Senate Defenders, BFP Firefighters, GSIS Furies, PNP Responders, Judiciary Magis, Malacañang Patriots, HOR Solons, DOJ Boosters, and Ombudsman Graft.
UNTV Cup is only one of the many public service projects of UNTV-BMPI CEO and Chairman, Kuya Daniel Razon. His great intention for this basketball league is to promote unity among public servants and to help each agency to reach more people, especially the needy. Razon also allows each team to have their chosen beneficiary to be a partaker of their winnings.
On its previous season, UNTV Cup gave a total of 8 million pesos on its Championship game. The Armed Forces of the Philippines, dubbed as the AFP Cavaliers, received a cash prize of 4 million pesos after winning the championship game.
The Members Church of God International (MCGI), also known as the Ang Dating Daan led by Bro. Eli Soriano, is the primary group that helps and supports Kuya Daniel Razon in almost all of his advocacies.
