THE ATENEO BLUE EAGLES drove Volkswagen vehicles to and from games of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 86 3×3 Basketball Tournament held last week at Ayala Malls Manila Bay.

As the Ateneo Blue Eagles’ Official Mobility Partner for UAAP Season 86, Volkswagen offered its popular German-engineered models — the T-Cross subcompact crossover and the Lamando executive sedan — to the Ateneo Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball Teams.

Said Volkswagen Philippines Chief Operating Officer Josh Altarejos, “The Ateneo basketball team’s pursuit of excellence is a trait Volkswagen’s German-engineered lineup equally projects. With the Ateneo Blue Eagles’ championship pedigree, we are confident that they will positively impact the sport this year, in the same way the Volkswagen brand creates fun and memorable experiences for its owners everywhere.”

Joined Ateneo Athletic Director Emmanuel Fernandez, “We are thankful for the partnership and mobility boost provided by Volkswagen Philippines. The 3×3 Basketball Tournament highlights a different way of playing the country’s most popular sport. Driving worry-free to and from the games with the three stand-out and stylish Volkswagen models will give them the additional confidence they need going into the tournament. Together with Volkswagen Philippines, we aim to embody excellence in our game this year.”

All German-engineered Volkswagen Philippines models are covered by a once-a-year periodic maintenance service (or every 10,000 kilometers, whichever comes first), a three-year/100,000-kilometer vehicle warranty, and free one-year 24/7 emergency roadside assistance.
