Camaraderie and brotherhood are two of the core values that paved the way for MWSS’ longevity which will hit 140 years in February this year. To symbolize these, the MWSS organized the 2018 Carriedo Cup which will feature several sporting events involving MWSS-CO, MWSS-RO, its Concessionaires Maynilad and Manila Water along with other partners such as LWUA,OGCC, Northrail, NAPC, Bessang Pass and Catalina Security Agency. The tournament is set for opening on January 12, 2018. However, the basketball component of the Cup was opened a little earlier, on January 8, to accommodate the number of games to be played.

The invocation during the opening ceremony of the basketball tournament was delivered by MWSS’ Vicente Elefante, followed by a welcoming speech of Admin. Jeci Lapus (LWUA), keynote messages by Admin. Rey Velasco (MWSS) and Oath of Sportsmanship from Mr. Melvin Arellano of Maynilad.

PBA Smart Talk N’Text players, Mo Tautuaa, Monbert Arong, Troy Rosario, Alfrancis Tamsi and Kris Rosales graced the event for the ceremonial toss and photo-ops, after which the official basketball games and fun began.
