Converge ICT remains committed to supporting the University of the Philippines, as it extended its partnership for the next two seasons.

According to founder and chief executive officer Dennis Anthony Uy, "Given the caliber and talent of these young guys under Coach Goldwin [Monteverde], I expect no less than a Final Four finish."

He adds, "Converge believes the Fighting Maroons are a strong and talented team that embodies UP’s tradition of honor and excellence on and off the court – values that we also strive for at Converge. This is why we decided to continue our partnership with the team for UAAP Seasons 84 and 85. This partnership goes beyond the court."

The partnership has also seen the telecommunications service provider supply the necessary bandwidth for the University's students for their remote learning needs during the height of the pandemic, including its student-athletes.

Uy shares, "Providing fiber connectivity for students and teachers is an advocacy that is close to my heart. It is a privilege for us to help create the classroom environment that will help students to excel in their studies. We will continue to contribute in this advocacy."

In revealing the extension, UP Men's Basketball team manager Atty. Agaton Uvero expressed appreciation for Converge's assistance.

"We are truly grateful to Converge for their faith in us and for all the support they’ve given to the team and the UP community throughout these challenging times. This is only the beginning of a strong connection between the Fighting Maroons and Converge. Together we will do great things," Atty. Uvero said.
