MAS Presents the Moneygram Filipino Basketball Day with the Sydney Kings. The annual basketball exhibition is a celebration of Filipino pride and the Sydney Kings’ acknowledgement of the growing Philippine community presence in the region. The upcoming event will feature pre-game exhibition matches between La Salle and Ateneo alumni teams and Moneygram-Hoopdreamz Allstar squads. X-Factor girl group ZAKIYA will sing the Australian National Anthem while Australia’s Got Talent 2012 grand finalist Kookies N Kream will dance at the halftime break. The main game will be the Sydney Kings against visiting Perth Wildcats.
MAS Presents director and Filipino Australian Basketball president Marco Selorio said, “We love the game, and we are excited to showcase Filipino talents in front of the Kings fan base. This year Moneygram has provided support for the newly-established Filipino Australian Basketball (FAB) association, which will be the breeding ground for up-and-coming Filipino-Australian athletes.”
