Charles Tiu will be at the helm as Mighty-Go for Gold returns to action in the regional tourney

Given the opportunity to represent the country again, Mighty Sports Philippines made sure to find the right partner.

Mighty Sports will have Go for Gold by its side for the 2019 William Jones Cup, set to take place from July 12 to 21 in Taiwan.

With this partnership, the squad will be known as Mighty Sports-Go for Gold for the pocket tournament.

"It is always a great honor for any organization to represent the Philippines," said Mighty Sports team owner Alex Wongchuking. "We will always do our best to form the most competitive team possible to bring pride and honor to our country and provide basketball entertainment to our overseas countrymen."

"I believe we have shared values in promoting and developing Filipino athletes and bringing pride to our nation," added Go for Gold team owner Jeremy Go.

Steering the squad in the Jones Cup is Charles Tiu, the coach who steered the Go for Gold Scratchers to the 2018 PBA D-League Foundation Cup crown.

The last time Mighty Sports competed in the annual tournament was back in 2016 as the squad completed an eight-game sweep to give the Philippines its fifth Jones Cup trophy.
