TV5 signs five-year deal to broadcast FIBA national team competitions in Philippines

MIES, Switzerland/MANDALUYONG CITY, Philippines - FIBA on Sunday announced it has reached an agreement with TV5, a major Filipino commercial multi-channel and multi-platform network, for exclusive rights to FIBA national team competitions over the course of a five-year period.

From 2017 to 2021, TV5 will broadcast action from the Continental Cups as well as the FIBA Basketball World Cup. Additionally, with FIBA's New Competition System coming into effect in November, TV5 will be the place to follow Gilas Pilipinas and other national teams from all over the world as they set out to qualify for the first 32-team edition of FIBA's flagship event taking place in China in 2019.

The partnership will be in effect across all platforms - free and pay TV, online, mobile - and means bringing year-round FIBA action to one of the countries that is most passionate about basketball.

Patrick Baumann, FIBA Secretary General and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Member, said: "We're very excited about this partnership with TV5. They did a great job of showcasing Gilas Pilipinas in action at the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship and 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup. We enjoyed a tremendous working relationship with them as rights holders of the 2016 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Manila. We now look forward to building on the success of those experiences in order to bring the very best of international basketball to the Philippines on a regular basis."

Manuel V. Pangilinan, Chairman of TV5, said: "TV5, the country's leader in sports broadcast, will further fuel the already intense Filipino passion for the sport of basketball, by utilizing multiple platforms that will give access to the games like never before."

"With the New Competition System and Calendar, Filipinos will experience more FIBA events and will get to see the national team play on home court more often. We are honored to be FIBA's partner as they push for the dynamic growth and development of basketball in the Philippines and around the world."

The agreement was brokered by FIBA Media, the strategic partnership between FIBA and Perform.
