"Launching the Alaska Aces app is about giving our fans continuous access to the team. In the connected and digital world we live in, we realize how people tend to engage and this app provides such an opportunity." said Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, Aces Team Owner. We have always sought to be a pioneer in the PBA, so whether it be the first team to provide rings to a Championship team, to retiring a player's number or develop a dedicated website, Alaska has been at the forefront of new developments. "My favorite saying is GOOD ENOUGH, NEVER IS. And that applies to all aspects of the franchise. I'm confident this new feature will be enjoyed by all our fans and perhaps attract new ones." Uytengsu added.
