The Adamson Falcons are doing well in the UAAP men’s basketball because of their solid program.
Since taking over the program in 2016, coach Franz Pumaren has steered the team to two consecutive Final Four appearances.
This year, the Falcons are touted as strong title contenders and so are the Lady Falcons.
Adamson’s rise in the UAAP could well be attributed to the support of Akari CEO Christopher Tiu who reiterated the lighting and energy company’s commitment to help enlighten the future of the Filipino youth.
Akari’s unwavering support to the Adamson University for the past five years is just one of the many initiatives under the brand’s youth development and sports program. The company has formalized the Akari Foundation to extend its support to the youth beyond collegiate sports.
“Through the Lim Liok Lim and Carter Tiu scholarships, we aim to give back via tertiary scholarship grants. We’re also open to providing scholarship grants to indigent but deserving individuals,” Tiu said.
As part of their off-season build-up, the volleybelles are joining several leagues ahead of their UAAP season opening in February next year.
Early this year, the Akari National High School Volleyball Championships was held to scout promising players and bring them in to the Adamson junior and senior volleyball programs.
