Yamaha Motor Philippines, Inc. will be supporting student-athletes as a partner of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for Season 96. After a league wide postponement due to the pandemic, NCAA returns for its 96th season, with Yamaha pledging its support to the institution.

Bannering this sports season is the recently launched Yamaha Mio lineup with ‘Own the Culture’ as its theme. The Yamaha Mio and the NCAA have a lot in common, being ridden by a collective of riders with outstanding personalities who have created their own Mio culture. Just like how these athletes are blazing their own path that defines who they are as competitors and each school creating their own winning culture.

Yamaha is no stranger to competition and performing at a high level, supporting the first ever Filipino racer to compete at the Moto2 level, McKinley Kyle Paz. Yamaha has molded champions that compete on an international level and dominate local competition. It continues to offer machines that are cutting edge in performance and efficiency. It is no different to realizing the peak athletic potential of those competing in the NCAA.


The season will adhere to all health and safety protocols but more importantly showcase the passion of the 10-member schools to continue their resilience during this new normal. This mirrors Yamaha’s enthusiasm of moving forward even in this hardest of times. Because no matter the challenge this partnership demonstrates that we can all rise, stronger towards a better tomorrow, when we do it together.
