Sporting programs of colleges and universities continue to suffer hits due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Technological Institute of the Philippines has suspended the operations of the school’s athletics program as a cost-cutting measure due to the decrease of enrollees and the lack of sporting events for the foreseeable future.
“It was an inevitable circumstance,” lamented Engineers head coach Potit De Vera.
Last week, the Philippine Sports Commission ruled the suspension of all sporting events until a “vaccine has been discovered”.
The Engineers’ mother tournament is the UCBL. For the past few years, TIP has been joining the PBA D-League as well.
On the other hand, the Lady Engineers have also been part of the V-League’s Collegiate Conference.
“With no clear timetable as to when a vaccine will eradicate this COVID-19 virus and make it safe again to resume sports in our country, TIP ownership has dissolved all varsity programs,” De Vera continued.
Two weeks ago, leaked documents from Colegio de San Juan de Letran showed that the 400-year-old institution is also trying to slash some varsity squads to cut costs as well.
