Cebu City Hosts Palarong Pambansa with Marcos and Duterte

CEBU CITY — The opening ceremony of the 2024 Palarong Pambansa is scheduled for Tuesday at the recently renovated Cebu City Sports Center. Notable figures from the country will be there.

The head of the Cebu City Sports Commission, John Pages, confirmed to The Manila Times that President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. will be attending the event. Sara Duterte, the vice president, had already confirmed her participation for last week.

There are rumors about Marcos and Duterte’s political partnership, which is why they both attended the ceremony. Following her resignation from the Marcos Cabinet last month, there have been talks regarding the possible breakup of their UniTeam duo following the 2022 election.

After Duterte resigned from her positions as Education Secretary and Vice Chairman of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict, former Palace spokesperson Harry Roque posted on social media that the presidency and vice president had “dissolved” their alliance.

The games are aimed at student athletes in elementary and secondary school, and according to Pages, a number of senators and government representatives are anticipated to attend in addition to the top two officials. Sonny Angara, the incoming education secretary, will also be in attendance.

Cebu City will hold the Palarong Pambansa for the third time; it has done so twice before, in 1954 and 1994. Approximately 12,000 people from across the nation are anticipated to attend the event, which is scheduled to run until July 17.

The head of the disaster office, city councilors, and acting mayor of Cebu City Raymond Alvin Garcia inspected the 20 schools that were set aside as participant lodging on Sunday. Additionally, they examined a number of performance spaces that have been authorized for the occasion.
