BACOLOD City -- For the first time in the history of regional sports meets, the Western Visayas Regional Athletic Association (WVRAA) will hold next year’s events in a “home-and-away” format from February 14 to 19, 2013 in the six provinces of the region.

This, after the Aklan provincial government headed by Governor Carlito Samson Marquez reportedly refused to host next year’s WVRAA as the Department of Education (DepEd) provincial office failed to coordinate with him.

The hosting was first awarded to Antique but Aklan was so insistent that it was awarded to them. But due to some conflicts, Antique was called to host but they refused this time, thus the “home–and-away" was introduced.

Seventeen sports disciplines, including cultural competitions will be contested by the six provinces which will have designated events to host.

Eight events will be held in Negros Occidental with Bacolod, Bago and Silay Cities as co-hosts in athletics, football, tennis, (Bago) boxing, gymnastics, (Bacolod) basketball, special events, (Silay) taekwondo and cultural competition.

Iloilo will host badminton, elementary and secondary baseball and softball; Aklan with sipa, sepak takraw and arnis; Antique with archery and swimming; Guimaras with chess; and Capiz with table tennis and volleyball.

The events to be played in single elimination are athletics, tennis, boxing, taekwondo and badminton. The double elimination events are football, baseball, tennis and volleyball.

Basketball and chess will be played in roundrobin; and single round robin will be implemented in gymnastics and the finals in cultural, trail, special games and softball. (PNA)
