Eduard Tio has been appointed chairman of the Philippine Secondary Schools Basketball Championship (PSSBC) which opens shop anew on December 14 at SGS Gym in Quezon City.
A longtime godfather of Chiang Kai Shek College and, more recently, Nazareth School of National University, Tio replaced Rain or Shine co-team owner Terry Que as chair of the league that has helped nurture several high school players who have become collegiate stars.
Apart from PSSBC, Tio, the 64-year-old owner of Freego Jeans, has been supporting various leagues like NBTC, PCABL, HDBL and MMBL, believing that sports plays an important role in one’s life.
“I share Freego’s way of helping grassroots sports programs, especially basketball,” said Tio. “I hope I can sustain the growth of the league which our past chairmen initiated.”
The Board of Governors is completed by Hapee Toothpaste’s Dr. Cecilio Pedro, Blackwater Sports’ Dioceldo Sy, IronCon Builder’s Jimi Lim, Jumbo Plastic Linoleum’s Jimmy dela Cruz, MEC Networks’ Leoncio Chua, and Macbeth Underwear’s Rudy Yu.
Members of the Management Committee of the event also supported by Masumax Food Supplement, Cherrylume Roofing, SUMO GI Sheets, Choi Garden, and Molten are Commissioner Ato Badolato, Arellano University’s Peter Cayco (representing NCAA) NU’s Nilo Ocampo (UAAP ), Sunny Co, Bernard Yang, and Edster Sy.
