The Crossovers also acquired the services of veterans Nene Bautista from Army, which took a leave of absence, and former BaliPure wingers Bern Flora and Carly Hernandez.

Also suiting up for the Tornadoes are University of Santo Tomas products Maji Mangulabnan and Babylove Barbon as well as Sydney Niegos of Jose Rizal University.

Foton will begin its campaign on 29 June against Petro Gazz at the FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan.
