GMA to showcase NCAA on all mediums

For the third time in six years, the National Collegiate Athletic Association is in another home.

NCAA and GMA Network formalized its five-year partnership to broadcast the Grand Old League.

The signing of the memorandum of agreement took place at Colegio de San Juan de Letran, Thursday afternoon.

“This team-up with the country’s first athletic league is very much meaningful for us in GMA.

“We are looking forward to showing everyone the world-class talent of our young Filipino student-athletes, and rest assured that we will only give what is best for them as GMA Network wholeheartedly welcomes the NCAA into our home,” said GMA Chairman Felipe L. Gozon.

“Having the opportunity to serve as a platform for NCAA in shaping our future national athletes is indeed an honor for the Kapuso Network. The fans and supporters of the NCAA can expect that GMA will pull all the stops to bring the best collegiate sports viewing experience for everyone,” added COO Gilberto Duavit Jr.

The partnership will last from Seasons 96 to 101. It will bring the NCAA to all of GMA’s platforms, namely GMA 7, GMA News TV, GMA Pinoy TV, and the website.

Events to be aired are basketball, volleyball, swimming, athletics, and cheerleading.

“More than putting ink on paper, this MOA between the NCAA and GMA Network is really an act of hope, committing the 10-member schools of the first and longest-running collegiate athletic league in partnership with the number one multi-media network, to fulfilling the dreams of our student-athletes to healthy and safe competition, and inspiring our school communities and the entire country towards a better way of engaging and enjoying sports, especially in the context of this pandemic,” said NCAA Policy Board president Fr. Rector Clarence Marquez, OP.

“We believe that with GMA’s reach and platforms, the NCAA will be the undisputed number one collegiate league in the country. The first athletic league in the country and Asia deserves to be in the number one Network in the Philippines,” added Management Committee president Fr. Vic Calvo, OP.

“Arriba NCAA at GMA!”
