Kangwon Land ‘High One Winners’ Debuts in PBA Team League
Kangwon Land’s (CEO Lee Sam-gul) professional billiards team, Hi-One Winners, made its debut in the PBA Team League tournament at the Kintex PBA Stadium in Goyang City, Gyeonggi Province on March 3.
‘Hi-One Winners’ faced ‘Crown HaeTae’ as their first opponent and played a duel at 11 pm on the 3rd. This team league is significant for billiards fans as it is the debut of seven players of the Hi-One Winners, showing their teamwork.
This season’s PBA Team League will be played on a points-based system from Round 1 to Round 5, with the five winners of each round out of nine teams advancing to the postseason to determine the final winner next January.
In June, Gangwon Land signed a sponsorship deal with players Lee Chung-bok, Lim Sung-gyun, Nguyen Duc Anh Chien, Nguyen Phung Linh (Vietnam), Lupi Chenet (Tourquier), Im Rae, and Yong Hyun-ji at its headquarters in Jeongseon, Gangwon-do, to create the professional billiards team High One Winners. The players have been practicing hard to win the post-season, and in the individual tournament held in July, the players of Hi-One Winners stood out in the league and achieved good results. In the men’s tournament, Luffy Chenette was the runner-up in the PBA (3rd) Regular Tour for the 2023-2024 season, and Yong Hyun-ji was the runner-up in the women’s tournament (2nd) Regular Tour, which ended on the 9th of last month. Gangwon Land plans to host the PBA-LPBA Tour again this year as it did last year and utilize it as a marketing event, given the good performance of the players and the boom in billiards at home and abroad.
“The sponsorship of the Hi-One Winners has shown excellent advertising effects, with corporate brands being broadcast live on billboards in the stadium and on the players’ uniform emblems,” said Lee. “We will actively support the players to achieve good results and promote Gangwon Land and Hi-One Resort by hosting the tournament.” Yoo Ju-hyun 파워볼사이트
