Palawan province gears up to co-host Batang Pinoy 2019 Finals
The Palawan province is now gearing up to co-host the Batang Pinoy 2019 Finals alongside Puerto Princesa City this August 25 to 31.
“Pormal na iginawad ng Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) sa lokal na pamahalaan ng Puerto Princesa City ang pagiging host ng Batang Pinoy 2019 Finals at ang lalawigan ng Palawan naman bilang co-host,” the province said.
“Ang naturang palaro ay inaasahang lalahukan ng mga manlalaro mula sa iba’t ibang probinsya sa Pilipinas,” it added.
Francis Nemenzo, sports and games inspector ng Provincial Sports Division, said that they are just waiting for the request of the Puerto Princesa LGU as its co-host.
“Inaantay nalang namin ang city government kung ano ang request nila sa atin as co-host… mag-occular inspection pa kasi ang mga taga Philippine Sports Commission dito,” said Nemenzo.
The province said that they expect 10,000 athletes will participate in the national championships featuring 21 sporting events such as archery, arnis, athletics, boxing, dance sport, swimming, among others.
