Cebu Provincial Tourism Officer Maria Lester Ybañez told SunStar Cebu that they only printed around 10,000 wristbands that would serve as tickets the public can use to enter the Cebu City Sports Center on Sunday, August 2022.

Ybañez noted that the grandstand has the capacity of around 12,000 but they only printed 10,000 for safety purposes and avoid congestion during the event.

She said they distributed equal number of wristbands to all the local government units (LGUs), including the two guest cities of Cebu and Lapu-Lapu.

Around 50 contingents from various parts of Cebu participated in this year's Pasigarbo sa Sugbo.

"We also allocated certain number of wristbands to our stakeholders in this program and of course, to our supporters. The rest we gave out to those [who] inquired online and at the gates," said Ybañez, adding that some would really try to go inside the venue of the ritual showdown. (MKG)
