MANILA, Philippines – Just a day after they were feted by the entire Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) community for winning the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 80 men’s basketball championship title, the celebration continues for the storied Blue Eagles.
The ADMU Blue Eagles’ basketball players on Sunday, December 10, received the brand new Apple iPhone X units that were promised to them by the one and only team’s chief backer, Manny V. Pangilinan.
A number of key players took to social networking services to show off their new futuristic smartphone, with Thirdy Ravena detailing how he received his iPhone X on his Instagram story. Moreover, Ravena also wasted no time in showing off his phone’s capabilities on Twitter.

Filipino businessman and sports patron Manny V. Pangilinan, the Chairman of the Board and President & CEO of PLDT and Smart Communications, promised that all of the Ateneo Blue Eagles will get the new iPhone X in the University’s thanksgiving mass last week, immediately after they managed to steal the title over the De La Salle University (DLSU) in the UAAP Season 80 Finals.
Moreover, a trip to Hong Kong is also on the line for the champions.
