Gamefacers, next week we will launch Basketbolista. It will be the Philippines' First Exclusive Basketball Newspaper. We will have the poster displayed in the homepage soon. We shall also post herein the content of the maiden issue. We have just concluded an agreement with major dealers in Metro Manila and with some schools for distribution.

Anyone of you interested to advertise or distribute the same may PM me for more information.

We are likewise looking into on-line distribution and subscription specially to Gameface members.


Basketbolista is also owned by Gameface.ph.

YES !!! I like the name "Basketbolista" parang retro na macho hehe.parang it reflects the filipino's machismo brand of playing basketball kasi basketbolista is the filipino or to be more specific Hispanicized way of saying basketball player. although, the Spaniards or latinos traditionally use the word Baloncesto (for basketball) , adding the spanish suffix "-ista" to basketbol for basketbolista makes this a "Hispanismo"(a english or native word that has been hispanized) other examples are barbelista, punkista, etc.* By the way, there are at least 5,000 words in the visaya and tagalog dialects that have a spanish origin. In fact a major spanish newspaper estimated that 25 to 30 % of tagalog and visaya have spanish words whereas chavacano is about 70% or more spanish with incorrect conjugation. Ana gayud ang mga macho !* *Viva Basketbolista !* Ole !* * * * ;D

We are still working on the corporate distribution and school channels. You can get Basketbolista initially from your news stands as we closed the deal with the same dealers who distribute Philstar and Inquirer.

But to those who regularly pass by Katipunan, you can get a copy of Basketbolista from LS Bookstore in Ateneo College and Hooked on Books which is right after St. Ignatius Village.


It will be out starting today but bear with us as we are still in the process of distributing copies in strategic parts within Metro Manila.

thanks.

Tip lang: Use BOOKSALE to distribute your tabloid.

They have a lot of outlets around the country, mainly in SM Department Stores. They are also already carrying a lot of magazines in their lineup, I always go there whenever I want to buy a local mag.

'Kaya lang tabloid nga pala ito, hindi magazine.' Anyway, maybe it will apply.

Hooked on Books is actually near Eastwood. You just have to take the flyover going to Katipunan then turn right going to whiteplains. It is located before the Shell Gasoline Station.

We are still under negotiations to distribute to all National Bookstore, Shell/Caltex/Petron/Mini-Stop/7-11 outlets.

We just closed a deal with Expressions. The next issue will be distributed in all of their Metro Manila outlets.
