Mayor Dalipe seeks Zamboanga City’s smooth hosting of ZPRAA Qualifying Meet

Zamboanga City Mayor John Dalipe has ordered the concerned local government agencies to ensure the smooth conduct of the upcoming Zamboanga Peninsula Regional Athletic Association (ZPRAA) Qualifying Meet.

The local chief executive made the directive during the recent meeting of the ZPRAA organizing committee.

Slated to start on Sunday, April 21, the weeklong ZPRAA Qualifying Meet will draw more or less 10,000 student-athletes, coaches, technical officials and guests to Zamboanga City which is hosting the event again after 18 years.

The city government said among the issues and concerns discussed during the meeting were the provision of vans to each of the eight delegations to transport athletes to and from their quarters to playing venues, food allocation, and preparations at the billeting venues.

The Dalipe administration has earmarked P27 million from its Special Education Fund under the 2024 executive budget for the conduct of the ZPRAA, organized by the Department of Education in collaboration with the Philippine Sports Commission.
