CEBU, Philippines — The third leg of the Congressman Duke Frasco 5th District Cup 2024 will kick off at 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 18, at the Panphil B. Frasco Sports Complex in Liloan, Cebu.

The basketball a nd volleyball tournaments are geared towards the development of grassroots players in the Fifth District of Cebu.

Participants are coming from Danao City and the municipalities of Borbon, Carmen, Catmon, Compostela, Liloan, Pilar, Poro, San Francisco, Sogod, and Tudela.

“Our goal is to create one, united, and prosperous basketball and volleyball community for the 5th District that can develop not only basketball skills, but also the general well being of the person,” said Ian Callet, one of the organizers.

Liloan councilor Kath Jumapao said they will follow the 21 year old age ceiling for both divisions believing that this will help their young athletes to be discovered and hopefully propel them to get school scholarships.

Jover Pisao, who helps in running the event, shared Jumapao’s sentiment.

“The clamor for it to happen again is massive since it did not only help the respective municipalities sports tourism wise, but it also gave some of the athletes a way to be seen by prospects from different universities across the Philippines,” said Pisao.

The champion in both basketball and volleyball will take home a uniform cash prize of P150,000, while the second to fourth placers will pocket P100,000, P75,000, and P30,000, respectively.

Last year, the Catmon Mighty Bakers reigned supreme in volleyball, while the Carmen Super Niños grabbed the basketball crown.
