Master Game Face Challenge
Master, the country’s leading men’s skin care and face care brand, launched the Master Game Face All-Star Basketball Challenge 2014 where they introduced the all-star team of two basketball superstars of this generation— Chris Tiu and Marc Pingris. The launch was held at the Treston Int’l College Gym in Bonifacio Global City last April 24, 2014. The game, which puts select Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Players against handpicked Gilas National Team members, will surely be an exciting match.
“As the no. 1 male face care, male facial wash and face cleanser brand in the country, it is natural for us to come up with an activity featuring the No. 1 sport — basketball. We are proud to invite fans to the Araneta Center on June 21 for the Master Game Face All-Star Basketball Challenge, where Master ambassadors Chris Tiu and Marc Pingris will battle for an epic showdown with their respective squads of top collegiate hoops players and all-star players from the Gilas team and professional basketball groups.
"It will be a good venue to showcase how top Filipino basketball players put their oil-free game faces on with Master Oil Control Max Facial Wash” said Unilever’s Male Grooming Brand Manager Jonathan Pua.
Under the helm of former Ateneo Blue Eagles and SEA Games team captain and current Rain or Shine player Chris Tiu are UAAP basketball stars Jeron Teng (DLSU), Chris Newsome (ADMU), Kevin Ferrer (UST) and Mike Tolomia (FEU).
“Fans are going to have a great time seeing such powerhouse players in the Master Game Face All-Star Basketball Challenge this year, and I’m especially happy to be able to play with such talented young blood and with other Professional basketball players,” said Tiu. His team is expected to include other top players from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and from the PBA. Fans of Chris Tiu’s team can show their support online by using the hashtag #MasterGameFaceChris.
Current Gilas Pilipinas player and PBA defensive play legend Marc Pingris is also set to lead UAAP stars Andre Paras (UP), Jeoffrey Javillonar (NU), Jericho Cruz (ADU) and Roi Sumang (UE). His team will also include professional basketball players and selected collegiate players. Fans of Marc Pingris’ team can show their support online by using the hashtag #MasterGameFaceMarc.
“I’m excited to start playing with my team. We hope to put up a great game against our opponents and to show young athletes how to put their Game Faces on with Master,” said Pingris.
Along with the unveiling of the starting five players, Master also announced the launch of an online app for basketball fans to vote from a selection of All Star players from the professional league to join Team Chris and Team Marc. Fans can vote by logging on to facebook.com/MasterPhilippines and by clicking on the Master Game Face application.
“We’re also counting on the fans to help us build the teams by voting for their choice players through the Master Game Face voting app. Lucky fans who will vote for the correct and final set of players will win tickets to the all-star match, as well as special basketball merchandise,” said Pua.
