The Alaska Aces, one of the most successful franchises in the Philippine Basketball Association, formally launched the Alaska Aces App. This is another innovation which brings the team closer to the public and to its fans (Gatas Republik).
“Launching the Alaska Aces app is about giving our fans continuous access to the team in the connected and digital world we live in; we realize how people tend to engage and this app provides such an opportunity,” said Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, Aces team owner. We have always sought to be a pioneer in the PBA, so whether it be the first team to provide rings to a championship team, to retiring a player’s number or developing a dedicated website, Alaska has been at the forefront of new developments. “My favorite saying is GOOD ENOUGH, NEVER IS. And that applies to all aspects of our franchise. I’m confident this new feature will be enjoyed by all our fans and perhaps attract new ones.” Added Uytengsu.
The Alaska Aces App was formally launched last Nov. 27 at the Imperial Ice Bar, The Fort Strip, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
The Alaska Aces became the first team in the PBA to have their own smartphone application which allows the public to have access to the current events, news, updated team profile pictures and videos of the Alaska Aces.
The Alaska Aces App is free and may be downloaded through any android or iphone.
Alaska Aces team manager Richard Bachmann said the Alaska Aces App allows fans to be updated with their favorite Alaska Aces players and to see their activities on and off the court.
Alaska fans may also win cool prizes from the Alaska Aces through the Passport feature in the App. This feature keeps them updated about big events and activities of the Alaska Aces. Regular use of the App gives the user points which entitles them to get great prizes.
The Alaska Aces has become one of the most successful PBA teams while adhering to the guiding principle set forth by team owner Fred Uytengsu of winning with integrity and always practicing fair play.
Like other PBA teams, the Alaska Aces has their own Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. In addition, Alaska Aces is the only PBA team with its own website (alaskaaces.com.ph) and now Smartphone App as well.
