Gilas Belgrade OQT campaign to be streamed on SMART Gigafest


Smart Communications, Inc. lets fans support the Gilas Pilipinas Men’s all the way to the 2021 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament-Belgrade via real-time streaming through gigafest.smart.

Fresh from their stellar 3-0 performance at the Clark bubble of the 2021 Asia Cup Qualifiers, Gilas program director and head coach Tab Baldwin brings his young 12-man lineup to battle veteran lineups in Belgrade, Serbia. Gilas is scheduled for games against the host country Serbia and the Dominican Republic on July 1, 2:15am, and on July 2, 2:30 am.

“Gilas gave us so much more during their Clark stint and made the return of live international basketball worth the long wait. Fans like myself live for these kinds of games. The Gilas plot represents the story of the Filipino people and we proudly stand beside them all the way in this journey,” said Al Panlilio, President and CEO of PLDT Inc. and Smart Communications.

“We are pleased to bring the games directly to our subscribers as the actions happen over at gigafest.smart, making sure that Filipinos get to witness the games in Serbia in real time and be able to express our unwavering support online for our young, highly-capable, and passionate national team,” added Panlilio, who is also the President of Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP).

The Philippines is banking on the momentum courtesy of Gilas’ six-game sweep of the FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers. Gilas needs to score an upset in Belgrade to have a shot at the knockout semis against any of the following teams—Puerto Rico, Italy, or Senegal. The top two teams will move to play in Group B of Men’s Basketball at the Tokyo Olympics.
