MANILA, Philippines — Barangay Ginebra San Miguel has unveiled a new jersey for the PBA Commissioner’s Cup that starts May 19.

The jersey gives fans an opportunity to collect five designs of the limited edition “Never Say Die” kits on the occasion of the franchise’s 40th anniversary in the pro league, reported the Philippine Star.

“The team will wear the new jersey only for the coming Commissioner’s Cup,” Ginebra marketing manager Ron Molina was quoted by PhilStar as saying. He said it’s the first time the “Never Say Die” slogan will be inscribed in words on a jersey.

“In the next conference, the Governors Cup, the team will revert to the standard jersey that was introduced in 2012. The Commissioner’s Cup is special because we’re the defending champion and we’re celebrating 40 years in the PBA and 185 years in the industry. It’s also our way of thanking the Ginebra fans for 40 years of unparalleled support in the PBA,” Molina said.

The “Never Say Die” jersey was unveiled in a nostalgic program that relived milestones of Ginebra’s 40-year history as a PBA franchise at the Novotel in Cubao.

Five variations of the jersey will be available for fans to collect in a promotion where the redemption period is from May 16 to June 30, according to the report.

The designs are No. 32 for Justin Brownlee, No. 13 for JayJay Helterbrand, No. 7 for Robert Jaworski, No. 47 for Mark Caguioa and No. 6 for Scottie Thompson. The Brownlee, Helterbrand and Caguioa jerseys are in white while the Jaworski and Thompson jerseys are in red. To score each jersey, fans may visit Puregold and select General Trade redemption outlets with six seals of Ginebra San Miguel or five caps of GSM Blue, GSM Blue Flavors, Primera Light Brandy or GSM Premium Gin plus P100.

It’s the third straight year that Ginebra is making available jersey designs for fans. In 2017, Ginebra rolled out five designs in a promotion highlighting uniforms from 1985, 1991, 1998, 1999 and 2012, according to the Philippine Star report.
