PASIG--Ginebra revealed the new jerseys that it will use in the upcoming PBA Commissioner's Cup during a special event at the PBA Cafe on Wednesday night.

The kits will bear "Ginebra Ako" at the front.

The term “Ginebra Ako” signifies the team’s resilience, determination, and perseverance throughout the four decades of playing in the PBA.

During these times, it is hard to miss that the fans have also embodied the aforementioned qualities.

Exhibiting sheer dedication and true value to teamwork has essentially fleshed out a new and deeper meaning to being ganado, thus making them “more Ginebra”.

Aside from the “Ginebra Ako” statement, some of the notable designs embedded on the jersey are the four stars, which represent Barangay Ginebra San Miguel’s four-decade stay in the PBA; and the crown, which depicts the team’s domination in both realms of basketball and the hard liquor industry (being the undisputed no. 1 selling gin in the world).
The official label of Ginebra is embedded at the tag of the jersey.
There are also three marks that verify the jersey’s authenticity.

First, the Ginebra San Miguel Label Tag, the iconic Ginebra San Miguel label featured as the tag of every jersey embodies the long-standing heritage and culture the basketball team represents via the product.

Second, the Patch of Authenticity with an embroidered signature of none other than the winningest coach in PBA history, Tim Cone, confirms the jersey is 100 percent authentic.

Third, the ‘Never Say Die’ Patch located on the backside of the jersey features the team’s mantra and represents the team’s resilience, which they are popularly known for.
