Converge, UP Fighting Maroons sign two-season deal

Fiber internet provider Converge ICT Solutions Inc., and the men’s basketball team of the University of the Philippines, have inked a two-season deal as the 84th season of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) commenced.

According to Converge founder and CEO Dennis Uy, he’s confident that the Fighting Maroons will be among the teams to reach the Final Four.

“Converge believes the Fighting Maroons are a strong and talented team that embodies UP’s tradition of honor and excellence on and off the court – values that we also strive for at Converge,” Uy said.

“This is why we decided to continue our partnership with the team for UAAP Seasons 84 and 85,” he added, noting that their partnership “goes beyond the court.”

The internet service provider also took over Alaska’s franchise in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).
