The Batang Gilas team is set to fly to Nonthaburi, Thailand on August 5 to August 11 to represent the Philippines at the FIBA U-18 Asian Championship. Smart and PLDT will support our team with Smart Travel Wi-Fi units and premiun load cards for PLDT's international calling service Free Bee. This will help the kids communicate with their families and friends to get encouragement when they need it.

Smart also assisted in terms of research and scouting during the FIBA U-17 World Cup last July wherein the Batang Gilas were put against the toughest teams including France, Croatia and the home team, Argentina.

The future is great for the Batang Gilas and Philippine basketball with young guys such as 6-10 Fil-Nigerian Ariel John "AJ" Edu, 6-1 Fil-Italian Dalph Panopio and the 7-1 Kai Sotto. The team also has Geoff Chiu, Gerry Abadiano, Dave Ildefonso, Migz Oczon, Joshua Ramirez, Raven Cortez, Rhayyan Amsali, and Xyrus Torres.

Smart has been supporting Batang Gilas since 2008. They want to give them all the support they can to help them qualify for the FIBA U-19 World Cup in 2019.
