In the heart of Metro Manila, the MVP Cup 2024: One Invitational Golf teed off at the prestigious Manila Golf and Country Club, commemorating a landmark gathering of over 400 golf enthusiasts from the country’s leading business communities. Organized by PLDT and Smart, with PLDT Enterprise playing a pivotal role, the friendly tourney served as a venue to celebrate leadership, camaraderie, and the collaborative spirit that is shaping the modern business landscape.

The MVP Cup 2024 wasn't merely a golf tournament; it was a celebration of enduring partnerships and a showcase of PLDT Enterprise's commitment, beyond traditional telco solutions, to foster meaningful experiences for its clients. Amidst the lush greens and challenging fairways, clients, and influential business leaders, including PLDT and Smart First Vice President and Head of Enterprise and International Core Business, Mitch Locsin, gathered not just for the love of the sport but for the spirit of unity and collaboration it fosters.

In his address, Locsin highlighted the essence of the event where "The MVP Cup has been a cherished year on year relationship tradition, and it is our way to say thank you for your continued patronage to all our customers. This year it’s made even more special as we bring together our Smart and Smart Infinity subscribers, PLDT Home Fiber subscribers, and most importantly, our valued PLDT Enterprise customers and partners. An MVP Cup first”.

Jojo Gendrano, Senior Vice President and Head of Enterprise Business Group at PLDT and Smart, echoed Locsin's sentiments and added, "This event symbolizes that golf is more than just a game; it's a manifestation of the solid partnerships we've built over the years. The MVP Cup showcases our commitment to excellence and innovation, not only in the field of telecommunications but in fostering a community that thrives on mutual respect, support, and a shared vision for the future. It's these values that enable us to provide unparalleled service and support to our clients, making each achievement a collective success."

The event's success was emblematic of PLDT Enterprise's leadership in creating platforms that not only challenge the physical and strategic capabilities of its participants but also strengthen the bonds within its community. The day was filled with competitive spirit, but the underlying theme was the power of coming together for a noble cause, supporting the Manuel V. Pangilinan Sports Foundation (MVPSF) to aid Filipino athletes in need.
