Vice President of the Philippines and Secretary of Education Sara Z. Duterte and the Local Government Unit (LGU) – Cebu City signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on Friday to ensure the intensive preparation for the 2024 Palarong Pambansa.

“We affirm our unwavering dedication to strengthening our support for young athletes. Our primary goal is to equip them with the necessary tools to nurture discipline, resilience, and the indomitable spirit required to pursue their athletic passions,” Vice President and Secretary Duterte said.

“The unique character and vaunted hospitality of Cebu City will make this year’s Palaro even more memorable for all our student-athletes,” VP-Sec. Duterte added.

Through the signing of the MOA, the Department of Education (DepEd) formally recognized the hosting of Cebu City, which was spearheaded by Cebu City Mayor Michael L. Rama, for the prestigious annual multi-sporting event.

Cebu will host the annual national amateur sports event of DepEd for the third time in history after staging the Palaro twice in 1954 and 1994.

“We’ve been waiting for 30 years for this moment. In fact, the Cebu City Sports Center was built 30 years ago, specific to the hosting of Palarong Pambansa in Cebu City,” Cebu City Sports Commission Chairman John Pages expressed while stressing the readiness of the city and sporting venues to be completed soon.

Under the agreement, DepEd, in coordination with Cebu City, will ensure security provisions and measures, transportation, and communications provision, and other requirements for the event.

On the other hand, Cebu City is tasked to create and convene the Local Palaro Executive Committee (LPEC) and Secretariat, and facilitate the sourcing of funds for the necessary expenses for the event, specifically those for construction and renovation of sports facilities, billeting quarters, and other infrastructural requirements of the Palaro host.
