San Miguel Beer and Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters Set to Battle in PBA Preseason Showdown

In an eagerly awaited PBA On Tour matchup, basketball enthusiasts eagerly anticipate San Miguel Beer’s performance under the guidance of coach Jorge Gallent following a successful conference. Presented by ARENA Plus and sponsored by Bingo Plus, the preseason series will feature a thrilling encounter between San Miguel Beer and the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters. The game is scheduled to take place at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday.


After taking over the coaching reins from Leo Austria before the last Governors Cup, Jorge Gallent steered the Beermen to an impressive second-place finish in the elimination round, with a remarkable 9-2 win-loss record, trailing only the TNT Tropang Giga (10-1). The team’s quarterfinal victory against the Converge FiberXers, with a commanding score of 121-105, showcased their determination and strength. However, their journey ended in the semifinals against the Barangay Ginebra team, led by Justin Brownlee, as they needed help to secure a single win in the best-of-five series.

As reigning Philippine Cup champions, the Beermen are expected to perform stellar during the “On Tour” series. While uncertainties loom regarding June Mar Fajardo’s availability due to his recent injury, fans can still rely on the top form of Chris Ross, CJ Perez, and Marcio Lassiter, who gained valuable experience representing Gilas Pilipinas in the successful 32nd Southeast Asian Games campaign in Cambodia. In the previous PBA season, the Beermen and the TNT Tropang Giga shared the second-best record, closely following the Gin Kings. With an impressive cumulative 38-21 win-loss card, San Miguel Beer aims to maintain its strong presence in the league. On the other hand, the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters secured the ninth spot, registering 13 victories against 23 losses. Although they missed the playoffs in the Philippine Cup, they exhibited their potential in the two reinforced tournaments under the debut leadership of PBA head coach Jamike Jarin.


The clash between San Miguel Beer and the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters is expected to be intense and closely contested. The Beermen’s desire to bounce back from their previous defeat and showcase their skills will make them a formidable opponent. However, despite the Fuel Masters’ determination to make their mark and prove their worth, the odds favor San Miguel Beer emerging victorious.


As basketball enthusiasts eagerly await the showdown between San Miguel Beer and the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters, the anticipation is palpable. With Coach Jorge Gallent leading the Beermen and their status as reigning Philippine Cup champions, they are determined to prove their mettle again. Meanwhile, the Fuel Masters, under the guidance of Coach Jamike Jarin, seek to make their mark and improve their performance from the previous season. The game promises to be a thrilling encounter, with both teams displaying their skills and tenacity on the court.
