UAAP eyes September 2021 for Season 84 opening

·1 min read

The University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) is hopeful that it could open Season 84 in September 2021.

This was the optimistic prognosis of the league’s executive director, Atty. Rebo Saguisag as the UAAP formalized its partnership with Cignal TV on Thursday afternoon.

"Our target, and we haven’t really discussed it, but kung walang discussion, we’ll stay with the default which is the usual opening around September 2021, if all goes well," Saguisag said. "Hopefully, the vaccines are here, we have better protocols, and the situation has improved, unless of course, the Board deems it otherwise to adjust again."

The UAAP though, is carefully measuring its steps not long after announcing that it was cancelling Season 83 just last week. Saguisag explained that everyone’s safety remains their top priority.

"What we're thinking of is the health and safety of our players. As for now, we're preparing for the next season," shared Saguisag. (JNP)
