The 2019 SEA GAMES, held in our shores this November was a successful stint for our local athletes. As of this writing, the Philippines has the highest haul of medals from almost all events. And if you noticed, there were dozens of sightings of various MG vehicles bearing the logo and slogan of the SEA GAMES. It’s no fluke, people. MG has allotted 80 units of MG vehicles to ferry athletes and sports officials in and around Metro Manila and various sport venues. Talk about going in style!
Morris Garages, better known today as MG, the much-loved British heritage car brand, has signed an agreement with the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC) and Mediapro Asia to be the Official Mobility Partner of the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games and the 10th ASEAN Para Games.
These special-edition MG 30th SEA Games edition vehicles (MG 6, ZS andRX5) will be seen in various parts of the country during the much-awaited, multi-sport biennial event. With this partnership, MG supports all the athletes participating in the 30th SEA Games on their path to greatness as we all #DriveToWin.
The MG brand is teeming with youthful energy, and its dynamism as an automotive innovator pushes the envelope of excellence. In this partnership with the 30th SEA Games, MG identifies with and celebrates the pursuit of excellence. The same values that drive MG forward: discipline, honesty, innovation, hard work, character, and fun are mirrored in each and every SEA Games athlete. In this respect, MG emulates and reflects the greatness present in every SEA Games athlete.
“To be part of the 30th Southeast Asian games—an edition that features so many milestones and firsts—is a distinct honor for us at MG Philippines. As the Official Mobility Partner of the 30th SEA Games, we are grateful to provide meaningful assistance to all local and international athletes and teams by equipping them with safe, comfortable, and stylish rides for the duration of the games. stated MG Philippines President & CEO Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla
It is our privilege to be of service to all athletes as they battle it out for their respective countries, and it invigorates us to see so many energetic talents sharing in the spirit of competition and camaraderie. Through this partnership, we uphold the long sporting heritage of MG and enliven the competitive spirit that fuels MG to excel.” added Atty Arcilla.
So what happens to the MG 6, ZS and RX5, well, sources said that the vehicles be be sold as ‘used” and will be offered for sale at 30% discount! Well, you better hurry as all MG dealers are said to be pre-selling them at a faster pace than expected. Whether you will remove the SEA GAMES livery is up to you, but we at StreettalkPh recommend that, for the time being, leave it be. Afer all, we celebrate the SEA GAMES’s success as one.
