UAAP yet to tackle eligibility extension after S83 cancellation

With the cancelation of the 83rd season of the UAAP, a new batch of student-athletes will ask whether they will be eligible for the next season. 

For the second semester collegiate athletes, they will not have played in the league for two years come Season 84.

First semester athletes, on the other hand, will miss a full season.

This is one of the points of discussion for the league’s Board of Trustees and Board of Managing Directors in the upcoming days, according to executive director Rebo Saguisag.

“Like last year, we will take it one step at a time. It will be tackled at a proper time,” said Atty. Saguisag during the contract signing between the league, Cignal, and Smart.

“I am confident that we will come up with the adjustments that will be good for everyone.”

After the cancellation of Season 83, the league granted fifth-year students and athletes above the age of 25 one more year, as long as they were in the lineup during the season.

Grade 12 student-athletes in the high school division have already exhausted their eligibility.
