Anticipating the DC SEA TOUR 2013, Sammy Gosling, DC South East Asia Marketing Executive stated, “Skateboarding in South East Asia is taking off and the skate community is becoming increasingly global due to social media. The local skate communities follow the global athletes such as Nyjah Huston online so it is great for them to get an opportunity to mingle with them in the flesh. By continuing to invest in the development of skateboarding in the region we hope to see a skater from South East Asia rise to the top of the world’s skateboard rankings in the future.”

“We are very much excited with the arrival of DC’s athletes in Manila. The emergence of international celebrities and athletes visiting our country the past year has made Philippines a destination for arts, music and action sports,” shared Edilyn Yu, DC Shoes Philippines’ brand associate, “DC’s goal is to cultivate a healthy community for skateboarding and for this community to grow. The DC South East Asia Tour 2013 is for Filipino skateboard riders and enthusiasts alike, to bring the skateboarding community together and to encourage Filipinos to pursue their love for the sport, that one day, a Filipino skateboarder may join the international scene as well.”

TeamPhil VS TeamJames: CLEAR DREAM MATCH

Clear Supremacy

Team James and Team Phil slated

This August 24th, The University of Makati, will be brimming with excitement as world-class talents battle for Clear Supremacy. Powered by Clear, the number one men’s shampoo brand, the biggest football all-star game in the nation shines brighter in its second year as World Cup champion Fabio Cannavaro and football legend Dennis Wise join James Youngusband, Phil Younghusband and the country’s top football talents.

After more than four weeks of voting Team James and Team Phil was decided last August 10th at the SM Megamall Events Center. With thousands of votes casted on the Clear Facebook page, the voting pool of 50 – consisting of Philippine Azkals, top United Football League players, University superstars and some local footballing celebrities – was trimmed down to 34, each one to be drafted by captains James and Phil Younghusband.
Clear Brand Manager, Drew Copuyoc said, “the rivalry this year is so intense. Throughout the four weeks both brothers were really gunning for that first pick.”

One unique facet of this year’s competition, however, is that it would be the fans that determined the first pick. Since July 3 fans have tirelessly supported their favorite team through digital participation – the reward being that the number one digitally active fan will get the chance to fly to Brazil with the Younghusband brothers in 2014.
Garnering more than 100 thousand online points, Team Phil was awarded the first draft pick. The Clear Dream Math draft consisted of three rounds. The first round saw James and Phil take turns in selecting their top five picks, Phil was given an extra pick for having won the matchup last year. In the second round, the brothers drew lots to complete their roster. Then in the last round, the brothers were each given one wild card pick. The wildcard pick could be any player either within the voting pool, or outside the voting pool.
The biggest headline, however, was that it would be football legends’ Cannavaro and Wise to select which team they would play for.

Vowing to help Team James gain revenge on younger brother Phil, Cannavaro chose to play on Team James. “Last year’s match was one sided, this year I want to help James even the score,” Cannavaro said regarding his selection.

Team James Players for the Round 1 are Yves Ashime, Jason De Jong, Misagh Bahadoran, Saba Garmaoudi and Oussenyou Diop.

For the Round 2- Roxy Dorlas, Chieffy Caligdong, Tony Toni, Nicolas Bolzico, Jonah Romero, Ian Araneta, Simon Greatwich, Andrew Santiago, Daniel Matsunaga, Slick Rick, Fabio Ide, Ref Cuaresma and Izzo.

Wise on the other hand selected Team Phil because of his desire to win. “Like Phil I love to win and I always love to score goals, and that’s the type of team I want to be associated with,” Wise said.

“I’m so excited for the game, I think I have made the right selection and look forward to defending my title as the better Younghusband,” said Phil.
James said, “It’s going to be a lot of fun, it’s going to be such an honor to share the playing field with legends such as Cannavaro and Wise.”
