THE Philippine Southeast Asian Organizing Committee (Phisgoc) is providing free shuttle to and from Southeast Asian (SEA) Games venues at the New Clark City (NCC), inside Clark Freeport and other parts of Angeles City and Pampanga.
This will allow spectators to watch the sports events live at the 2019 SEA Games, which formally opened Saturday, November 30.
At SM City Clark, the shuttle service is scheduled to leave for NCC at 7 a.m., 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. for the diving, swimming, and water polo event. Its return route is at 1 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Aside from the main venue of the competition at New Clark City, there will also be free service to the parade grounds of the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) for the petanque at 7 a.m., 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Phisgoc also provides free transportation to the LausGroup Event Centre for the judo, jujitsu and kurash event; and Angeles University Foundation (AUF) for the arnis, sambo, and wrestling.
President Rodrigo Duterte has directed Phisgoc to release the tickets for majority of the 56 sports events and the closing ceremony for free.
“Yung [tickets] sa games free, except for basketball, volleyball, and football where Philippine team is playing kasi sold out na,” said Phisgoc chair and House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano.
Mayor Carmelo Lazatin, Jr. of Angeles City and Mayor Reynaldo Catacutan of Capas town were spotted watching the water polo sports event at the NCC Aquatics Center on Thursday in support of the Filipino athletes.
