Around 2,278 athletes, coaches, and delegation officials will see action in the 15th University Games (UniGames) that will run from Oct. 24 to 30 in Dumaguete City.

This year’s games, dubbed as Paugnat sa Negros Oriental 2010 is mainly hosted by Silliman University.{{more}}

Thirteen-nine schools from around the Philippines have accomplished and submitted their initial registration forms.

Of the total number of confirmed delegates, 1,873 are athletes, 286 are coaches, and 119 are delegation officials.

Organizers lamented that some schools have backed out since they were not able to secure flight bookings in time for the Games.

All four flights daily to Dumaguete have been fully booked, also due to the Buglasan Festival activities.

The athletes will compete in 14 sports events to be conducted in various facilities in Dumaguete, Valencia, and Zamboanguita.

Partner hosts like Foundation University, Asian College of Science & Technology, St. Paul University, and Negros Oriental State University have pledged to accommodate the athletes. All officials and coaches have been billeted at the Negros Oriental Hotel & Aqua Center.

Others have preferred to make arrangements to stay in local hotels and pension houses.

Philippine Sports Commission President Richie Garcia, and Commissioner Chito Loyzaga will open the Games in ceremonies on Oct. 24 at the July Sy Grandstand and Filomeno Cimafranca Ballfield across the Silliman Medical Center.

The provincial government of Negros Oriental and the city government of Dumaguete are largely supporting the hosting the UniGames in terms of budgetary appropriations. (With reports from Mark Garcia/SU OIP)
