Adobo Plate 2009 sees action at ASCOM

The Philippines is the land of hoops, but being the contrarians that they are, advertising people prefer another kind of dribbling. With the feet.  Preferably, Kaka-style.

On November 14, the 2nd annual Adobo Plate tournament features even more players and more teams, all itching to get one or two past the keeper

Unlike last year where four agency teams plus one coalition team played, seven agencies are committed to play on the ASCOM field in Fort Bonifacio: DM9 JaymeSyfu, BBDO Guerrero/Proximity Philippines, Ace Saatchi & Saatchi, JWT, McCann Erickson and Publicis Manila.


The games are 5-a-side, round robin with the top four teams advancing to the semis.  Finals will played on the same day. 

With the Araw Awards entries now in the hands of the jury, these agencies can now concentrate on a more serious task at hand. The benches are reportedly quite deep, and save for the purist Saatchi team, all are drafting imports.  No different from your regular international league.

Last year’s champions, BBDO Guerrero/Proximity, has its job cut out for it. Suddenly, hunting Lions may seem a lot less challenging.

The games begin in ASCOM Field, Fort Bonifacio at 8:00am. See you there!
