Biliran said teams will come from Poblacion A and B, Paquibato, Buhangin, Talomo, Baguio, Bunawan, Agdao, Marilog, Tugbok, Toril, and Calinan districts.

"The teams will be grouped into two brackets where the top two teams of each group after the eliminations will advance to the cross-over semi-finals. The top teams, however, will have the twice-to-beat advantage," Biliran said.

Prizes will have yet to be announced during the opening rites that will be graced by either Mayor Rodrigo or Vice Mayor Inday Sara Duterte. (MLSA)
