UAAP cancels rest of Season 82 due to ECQ extension


The University Athletic Association of the Philippines has officially cancelled the rest of Season 82. 

This follows President Rodrigo Duterte’s extension of the nationwide enhanced community quarantine until April 30, 2020, early in the day.

“With the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) having been extended, the conditions for the resumption of UAAP Season 82 can no longer be met,” the league’s statement co-signed by Season 82 President Emmanuel Fernandez and Executive Director Atty. Rene Saguisag read.

“As such it is now deemed cancelled.”

Initially, the league was looking to implement a new format if the ECQ was lifted by April 14. However, the extension of the ECQ resulted in classes and other school activities remaining suspended beyond April 15.

Collegiate events that have stopped are the women’s and men’s volleyball tournaments, and the men’s and women’s football tournaments.

Currently, National University sits atop the women’s volleyball standings with a 2-0 slate. De La Salle University sits at second with a 1-0 record. University of Santo Tomas, Ateneo de Manila University, Far Eastern University, and University of the Philippines are 1-1. Adamson is 0-1, while University of the East is 0-2.

For the men’s side, NU and FEU are on top with 2-0 records. UP, Ateneo, and UE are 1-1. La Salle and Adamson are 0-1, while UST is at 0-2.

In Men’s Football, Ateneo, FEU, La Salle, and UP are on top of the table with four points each. UE and UST hold three points while Adamson and NU have yet to notch a point.

For the distaffs’ side, FEU and UP lead the way with three points each.  Ateneo and UST lost their opening day assignments, while La Salle and NU have yet to play a game.

Yet to begin are baseball, softball, athletics, lawn tennis, and 3×3 basketball.

The league will address the repercussions of this decision once the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is under control.

“All other issues related thereto will be resolved at the proper time as we continue to focus our time, energy, and resources in battling this crisis,” the statement continued.

Despite this, the league is grateful to everyone who made the season a success.

“Nevertheless, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our fans, partners, student-athletes, coaches, and all other members of the UAAP community.”
