Leading Philippine carrier Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB) supports Mindanao's homegrown football club, the Davao Aguilas (DAFC), with an aim to aid in growing the sport in Davao, as well as in the whole country.
CEB's contribution to the Davao Aguilas is a show of its commitment in the various aspects of nation-building, and the continuous support of its main hub in Mindanao, Davao.
"Cebu Pacific has always shown our support to initiatives that bring people together. Sports is one such avenue to highlight the value we put on building connections and teamwork," said Candice Iyog, VP for Marketing and Distribution of Cebu Pacific Air. "It's timely that we get this chance to support a football club from Davao. It's a welcome opportunity to bring in another organization into our wide network of partners."
"As we represent Davao and the Philippines, we are proud and grateful to receive the support of truly global Filipino brands like Cebu Pacific," said Michael Shaw, General Manager of the Davao Aguilas Football Club. "We align with the airline's values of raising competencies and the constant drive to develop excellence in any chosen field. Davao Aguilas FC is looking to take flight with Cebu Pacific at its back."
The DAFC is currently on its second season as it prepares to represent Mindanao in the Philippines Football League.
