Ginebra San Miguel Inc. launched the 2018 Limited Edition "Ginebra Ako" Jersey Collection yesterday, March 21, 2018.
The jerseys aim to pay homage to the “Never Say Die” spirit of Barangay Ginebra.
According to Ginebra, the term “Ginebra Ako” signifies the team’s resilience, determination, and perseverance throughout the four decades of being a part of the PBA.
"Last year," Ginebra explains, "the 'Ganado Classics: 3 Decade Jersey Collection' celebrated the historical moments of Ginebra. Every jersey in the collection showcased remarkable Ginebra stories, like the team 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."
If last year, the jerseys were used to recount the past, now, the 2018 Limited Edition 'Ginebra Ako' Jersey Collection aims to make the present more meaningful.
The jerseys also feature four stars, which represent Barangay Ginebra San Miguel’s four-decade stay in the PBA. They also have the iconic crown, which depicts the team’s domination in both the realms of basketball and the hard liquor industry.
Meanwhile, here are the three marks that verify the jersey’s authenticity:
Ginebra San Miguel Label Tag - the label embodies the long-standing heritage and culture the basketball team represents
Patch of Authenticity - an embroidered signature of Coach Tim Cone
“Never Say Die” Patch - features the team’s mantra and represents the team’s resilience, which they are known for
These limited edition jerseys will be worn by the team in the upcoming 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup this April 2018.
