Beermen celebrate PH Cup title with fans



PBA Media Bureau

Throughout the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup Finals, San Miguel Beer was outnumbered against fan favorite Barangay Ginebra.

Every game day was packed with predominantly Ginebra crowd, but San Miguel’s legion remained unwavered and on Wednesday, the diehard SMB fans were rewarded during a victory party that in a way served as a continuation of the franchise’s championship celebration three days ago.

“We’re very thankful for our fans. And this is our way of giving back to them after their support,” said San Miguel forward Arwind Santos before the party began at Robinson’s Magnolia. “June Mar (Fajardo) went here straight from Cebu and it just shows how we appreciate our fans’ love. We’re not going to hesitate in making our fans happy.”

“This is our fourth victory party and this is for our fans. They’re the ones who bring life to our league and we’re not going to be here right now if not for them,” said head coach Leo Austria. – INQUIRER.net
