Hoopland partners ABA Global

April 8, 2015 . Tampa, Florida - The USD$300million Hoopland Theme Park, a vision of ABA Global Chairman and sports philanthropist Paul Monozca in collaboration with ABA Los Angeles Slam team owner Don Sanchez will soon rise in Florida, USA and the basketball loving nation of the Philippines.

The investment to develop the Hoopland brand comes after an initial $200m has already been spent to develop television and other commercial interests worldwide which was completed this year to benefit the ABA till 2024. This brings the total investment committed for ABA Global to $500million by the Monozca Foundation which includes both the US and Asia facilities.

Covering an area of 25 hectares for Florida and 60 hectares for the Philippines, the park will house indoor basketball courts coupled with resort hotels, a discovery center, museum, a sports science center and the Spirit Sports University, Asia's first sports institution producing executive level programs in the sports industry.

The park will have as key investors the Parmon Trust of Europe represented by British and Arab investors and Singapore's Monozca Foundation. Joe Newman, ABA USA Chairman and CEO has also been appointed to the board of directors together with Tom Chichester, Director of Officials. The board is chaired by Paul Monozca.

"Don Sanchez had this fantastic idea of a basketball park and even gave the name for the development. This is definitely a good fit with our advocacy for educational entertainment and to build a fan base for the ABA worldwide starting from the grassroots level and up" said Paul Monozca. The park will have tremendous presence from ABA teams from the United States which will take part in the ABA Basketball Academy and other events leading to the ABA World Basketball Cup in Las Vegas.

The Monozca Group is known worldwide as the key investor in the Coral World Park (www.coralworldparkexperience.com) a Euro1Billion ocean protection project in the Philippines and owns stakes in companies around the world from coconut products to an electric car company. He invented the world's first cross border fund transfer system called the Parmon Payment Network used by ATM's and sold the company in 2005 afterwhich he formed one of Europe's largest Philanthropic Funds. He invested in the ABA in 2010 forming ABA Global as part of his sports interests (www.abaglobalbasketball.com).
