The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) has unveiled new logos for both the federation and Gilas Pilipinas national basketball squad.

This unfolds as the SBP announced that all the basketball national teams will be carrying the Gilas brand, from the youth team to the women’s team all the way down to the 3×3 squad.

The unveiling took place Wednesday evening at Smart Araneta Coliseum before the Game Four of San Miguel-Magnolia PBA Philippine Cup Finals.

The women’s team will now be called Gilas Pilipinas Women’s, the youth team will now be known as Gilas Pilipinas Youth from Batang Gilas, and the 3×3 will be Gilas Pilipinas 3×3.

“The rationale is to signify the strength and the disciplined direction that we’re trying to achieve in the federation,” explained SBP President Al Panlilio.

“In the Gilas logo we’ve done a study with the help of Cignal and what came up is the Gilas name is the most powerful one,” he added.
