LOOK: New Gilas Pilipinas logo unveiled
Gilas Pilipinas also gets a new logo, but unlike the that of the SBP, the national team gets a major facelift.

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas has pushed the refresh button and will start anew.

The SBP has unveiled a new logo Wednesday, marking a new era in Pilipinas basketball.

“The SBP logo is a slight refresh,” SBP President Al Panlilio said.

“It’s almost similar [with the old one]. It’s more of sharpening the lines and making them bolder. As a federation, we’re really going for bolder plans and we want to do better,” he added.

Gilas Pilipinas also gets a new logo, but unlike the that of the SBP, the national team gets a major facelift.

Also, the Gilas name will now be used across all pillars, including the women’s team previously called Perlas.

The youth team and the 3x3 team will alsow now be officially called Gilas.

“What’s coming out in our research is that the Gilas name is the most powerful. So what we’d like to really do is to use the branding of Gilas across all pillars,” Panlilio said.

“The Philippine Eagle will be merging with the basketball, showing our love for the game obviously. The italicized font shows the forward motion towards a bright future for the sport,” he added.
