Mighty Sports partners with Go for Gold for Jones Cup campaign


Given the opportunity to represent the country again, Mighty Sports Philippines made sure to find the right partner.

Mighty Sports will have Go for Gold on its side in the 2019 William Jones Cup, which is set to take place from July 12 to 21 in Taiwan.

With this partnership, the squad will be known as Mighty Sports-Go for Gold for the pocket tournament.

“It is always a great honor for any organization to represent the Philippines,” said Mighty Sports team owner Alex Wongchuking. “We will always do our best to form the most competitive team possible to bring pride and honor to our country and provide basketball entertainment to our overseas countrymen.”

Go for Gold has been a staunch supporter of Philippine sports, backing programs like cycling, skateboarding, triathlon, wrestling, and muay thai and, as well as, financing club teams in the sport of basketball and volleyball.

Helping the Filipino athlete compete in the international stage is the same mission shared by Mighty Sports and Go for Gold.

“We share Go for Gold’s vision in developing the level of basketball in the country. We would like to form a team that the youth will emulate, the value of sportsmanship, fair play, and excellence in the sport,” said Wongchuking.

“I believe we have shared values in promoting and developing Pilipino athletes and bringing pride to our nation,” added Go for Gold godfather Jeremy Go.

Steering the squad in the Jones Cup is Charles Tiu, the coach who steered the Go for Gold Scratchers to the 2018 PBA D-League Foundation Cup crown.

The last time Mighty Sports competed in the annual tournament was back in 2016 as the squad completed an eight-game sweep to give the Philippines its fifth Jones Cup trophy.
