UAAP suspends events due to State of Public Health Emergency


With President Rodrigo Roa Duterte declaring a State of Public Health Emergency, the University of Athletic Association of the Philippines has suspended all of its sporting events until March 14, 2020. 

The State of Public Health Emergency meant that all classes in Metro Manila have been suspended starting March 10 until 14.

It was raised because of the increasing number of cases of COVID-19 in the country.

The league has also deemed that all of its events must be suspended as well.

Tournaments that are affected are Collegiate Volleyball, Collegiate Football, Collegiate Softball, Collegiate Baseball, and High School Girls’ Basketball.

After the suspension, the league would take it day-by-day, depending on the government and its agencies.

In the meantime, the president and the league are calling all of the students to remain “confined in their homes and continue to study”.
