Biscuit and snack food giant Rebisco is going all-out for Philippine volleyball.
The main supporter of the Philippine Men’s and Women’s National Teams’ stint at the Asian Club Championship hosted by Thailand sees the international volleyball club competition as a great opportunity for our local athletes to gain the all-important foreign exposure that will hone their game.
Noric Ng, Business Unit Head of Rebisco, said everyone at Rebisco is happy that volleyball is alive despite the global situation; and that the country’s veterans and next generation athletes are able to play their game at a high level of competition.
“Rebisco is truly committed to pursuing its passion for volleyball by supporting the game at all levels, from grassroots development to competitive sports in the amateur and professional levels, and at the national level through this partnership with the PNVF,” Ng said.
Rebisco started supporting the national volleyball teams since 2017 but the three-year partnership signed with the PNVF for the National Teams enables the Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) to run a long-term, consistent national team program by providing regular funding and participation in competitions such as this.
Rebisco has its sights set on a podium finish in the 31st Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam in 2022.
“Our dream is to help the PNVF grow the sport and make this game an expression of the Filipino soul, locally and internationally,” Ng said.
“Our long-term goal is to make the Philippines a recognized international power in volleyball.”
