Kaspersky pledges support to Philippine ice hockey and tennis reps to 30th SEA Games in PH


During the signing are (from L-R) Francois Gautier, executive vice president of Hockey Philippines; Yeo Siang Tiong, general manager of Kaspersky Southeast Asia; LR Lancero, national men’s ice hockey team member; Marian Jade Capadocia, national tennis player; Steven Fuglister, team captain of national men’s ice hockey team; Anne Manalo, chief financial officer of iSecure Networks Inc.; and Martin Misa, vice president of the Philippine Tennis Association.

Kaspersky signed a memorandum of understanding with the national teams in ice hockey and lawn tennis pledging a financial incentive project for the athletes’ participation in the 30th edition of the Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in Manila this year.

The Philippines will host this year’s SEA Games slated on November 19 to December 11 in various venues around the country.

This is the first time Kaspersky is supporting local sports teams in the Philippines by putting up a financial sponsorship. The project is spearheaded by iSecure Networks, one of Kaspersky’s distributors in the country.

The cybersecurity company has been an eager supporter of sport teams since 2011 and among its popular global sport sponsorships include the Scuderia Ferrari, FIDE and World Chess Championship, Manly Warringah Sea Eagles rugby team of Australia, and the Trans Antarctic Expedition led by Felicity Ashton, to name a few.

Under the memorandum, Kaspersky is committed to award to the Federation of Ice Hockey League and the Philippine Tennis Association the projected P3 million worth of proceeds from the sale of Kaspersky Internet Security 2019 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2019 beginning from July to November this year. It will be turned over to the two groups by the end of the project period, which falls on December 2019.
