Good news OKBet fam! OKBet, the recently hailed Sportsbook Provider of the Year, sealed a deal with Cignal TV, becoming its main sponsor for broadcasting the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup on August 25.
The country’s premier Direct-to-Home (DTH) satellite provider and OKBet inked a deal last May 18 at the Black Olive Restaurant and Events Hall in Pasig City, formalizing the sponsorship agreement. Their goal is to bring the games closer to Filipinos via free-to-air television and other platforms.
Hence, this quadrennial sporting event is significant for Filipinos, especially since the Philippines is back to hosting the FIBA Games after 45 years. With the sponsorship agreement, OKBet will be alongside Filipino fans who are tuning in on the games.
“We welcome, acknowledge, and thank OKBet [as] one of our first broadcast sponsors for this monumental event,” expressed Cignal’s Vice President for Content Innovations, Solutions, and Channel Sales, Eric Centeno. “We are looking forward to a fruitful relationship and beneficial partnership moving forward.”
Present in the contract signing were OKBet Assistant Business Director Perterean Briñas, OKBet Brand Director Christopher Cañadella, Cignal’s Centeno, and TV5 Cluster Head Jackie Dulog.
Cignal TV, who also operates free television channels for TV5 and One Sport, will feature OKBet once it begins covering the matches of the FIBA WC. This means that millions of avid Filipino sports fans will feel the presence of the gaming platform during these Games.
To those who want to watch the games, you can do so by tuning in on TV 5, One Sports, One Sports +’s Pay TV, and OTTC C-Play.
This year’s FIBA WC will feature 32 teams competing for the prestigious FIBA World Cup trophy. The games will be in the Philippine Arena until September 10, with those 32 teams being divided into four groups.
Meanwhile, the Philippines’ own Gilas Pilipinas, headed by naturalized Utah Jazz star Jordan Clarkson is in Group A. They are pitted against Italy, Angola, and the Dominican Republic, with the top two teams advancing to the next round.
OKBet is not just a gambling platform. It is also a company that helps bring Filipinos together through sports.
