Novel UAAP inaugurals

The UAAP will break away from old tradition by staging an Olympic-style opening ceremonies for the start of its new season on Sept. 3 at the campus of host University of Santo Tomas.

UST’s representative to the UAAP board Gilda Paz Camus said yesterday that the opening is set at the school’s Plaza Mayor with performances, parade of athletes from eight participating schools, and likely the lighting of a cauldron being the highlights of the festivities.

It will be the first time that the league will stage such event since 2011 when then-host Ateneo held the opening rites amid rainy conditions at the Marikina Sports Complex.
