Big Mobile, the mobile engagement specialist, headed by Michael Buhagiar held its
inaugural agency basketball competition in Auckland on the 9th of August made up
with six digital agencies including Stanley St, OMD, PHD, FCB, Mediacom and Dentsu.
The tournament was made up with 3 v 3 half court mixed basketball, with two pools
of four competing for a place in the semi finals.
The semi finals came down to Dentsu v. PHD and FCB v. OMD Knicks. Both games
were fiercely contested, but the drama unfolded in the FCB vs OMD semi final game.
FCB narrowly winning the game after a free throw right on the full time buzzer. But
Dentsu showed their dominance in the series, with a strong final game to claim the
overall series win!
All the agency teams had a great time and it was much more competitive than first
expected with some great players and an ex-Tall Black showing us how its done.
Many are asking for a rematch in 2020 already – stay tuned for more details.
