MANILA – Ilocos Sur will host next year’s Palarong Pambansa, the Department of Education announced yesterday. The province won the bidding for the national sporting tournament against Marikina City, Baguio City, Benguet, Bulacan, and Ilagan City, Isabela, Education secretary Leonor Briones said in a press statement. Bidders were assessed based on readiness and completeness of sports facilities; compliance of such facilities with international standards; distance of venues from billeting quarters; peace and order; and support of other local government units (LGUs) and stakeholders. “We had a group of technical inspectors who visited these LGUs and talagang they scored almost the same,” said Briones. “But the province of Ilocos Sur championed the bidding because of its offering on how to make the conduct of the Palaro different for next year,” she said. Ilocos Sur explained how holding Palaro in the province would have an impact not only on its people but on all student athletes as well, said Tonisito Umali, assistant secretary for Legislative Liaison Office, External Partnerships Service and School Sports Division. “Since Ilocos Sur will have its 100th year celebration as a province. Its LGUs will have a lot of special events, which our delegates may be able to witness,” Umali said. The past Palaro hosting did not coincide with any huge event, he noted. “The 2018 Palaro might just be different.” “They will also give our student athletes a chance to tour Ilocos Sur. Vigan, for example,” added Umali. “It is important to show them how rich our culture is.” Palarong Pambansa is the Philippines’ premier national sports competition under Republic Act 10588. (PNA)
