Palawan’s capital city of Puerto Princesa will host the National Finals of the Batang Pinoy, the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) announced on Tuesday.
PSC Chairman William “Butch” Ramirez said the Batang Pinoy national secretariat will meet with Puerto Princesa Mayor Lucilo Bayron on May 23 to finalize the details of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the tournament, which was scheduled from August 25 to 31 this year.
“We have happily accepted the offer of Puerto Prinses to host the national finals,” said Ramirez in a statement.
An estimated 10,000 athletes, who took part in the qualifying legs held in Tagum City, Iloilo City and Ilagan City, will see action in 21 sports.
Participants in billiards, cycling, gymnastics, judo and muay thai were given automatic slots in the National Finals.
Last year’s National Finals was co-hosted by Baguio City and the province of Benguet.
