Are you a Barangay Ginebra fan? This is your chance to have your very own Ginebra Jersey from the recently launched 2018 Limited Edition Ginebra Ako Jersey Collection. The said jersey collection bears the newest design and a new meaning which will be worn by the team in the upcoming 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup starting April this year.
For the past four decades, the jerseys of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel have become the embodiment of the team – from its decorated history to its virtues. From the colors to the sewn patches, the jersey serves as the representation of the team and all it stands for. This is the philosophy practiced by Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.
Last year, the Ganado Classics: 3 Decade Jersey Collection celebrated the historical moments of Ginebra. The previous Ginebra jersey collection showcased remarkable Ginebra stories like winning its first PBA title in the 1986 PBA Open Conference and bagging the PBA Governors’ Cup Championship in 2016 after an eight-year title drought.
Let’s go back again to the newest Ginebra Ako Jersey Collection. The term “Ginebra Ako” signifies the team’s resilience, determination, and perseverance throughout the four decades of playing in the PBA. During these times, it is hard to miss that the fans have also embodied the aforementioned qualities. Exhibiting sheer dedication and true value to teamwork has essentially fleshed out a new and deeper meaning to being ganado, thus making them “more Ginebra”. It also pays homage to the “Never Say Die” spirit the whole Ginebra San Miguel community is truly proud of.
Aside from the “Ginebra Ako” statement, some of the notable designs embedded on the jersey are the four stars, which represent Barangay Ginebra San Miguel’s four-decade stay in the PBA; and the crown, which depicts the team’s domination in both realms of basketball and the hard liquor industry (being the undisputed no. 1 selling gin in the world).
So… How to know if you have the authentic 2018 Limited Edition Ginebra Ako Jersey? There are three ways on how you can verify.
First, the Ginebra San Miguel Label Tag, the iconic Ginebra San Miguel label featured as the tag of every jersey embodies the long-standing heritage and culture the basketball team represents via the product.
