Batang Pier now known as NorthPort for Governors’ Cup


MANILA — GlobalPort is going north.

The Batang Pier will now go by the name NorthPort starting in the upcoming Governors’ Cup, which is set for an August 17 tip-off.

From the neon colors, the team will now don red and yellow kits for the season-ending conference.

The Batang Pier’s Twitter page officially announced the name change on Friday with the hashtags #GoNorth and #DoNotFearOnlyBelieve.

Stanley Pringle and Sean Anthony will still lead the squad, although he will be out for quite some time due to his Asian Games commitment. (PNA)
