Other members of their team are Rod Vasallo of PITC, Anton Tolentino of PNP, Julius Casaysayan of Agriculture and GSIS’ Carlo Gonzalez and Macky Escalona.

Comprising the celebrity squad are Mark Herras, Ejay Falcon, JayR, Young JV, Jordan Herrera, Adrian Alandy, James Blanco, Albie Casino, Gerhard Acao, Axel Torres, and Rayver Cruz.

The event will have Crispa great Atoy Co as match director, with Ed Cordero calling the shots for Legends-UNTV team. Meanwhile, Emman Monfort coaches the celebrities.
