MANILA -- Gearing up for its eighth year, the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) will hold four regional legs wherein 20 provincial kings will slug it out for prized tickets for the “Sweet 16”.

The regional champions will advance to the zonal qualifying games to be held in Manila and Cebu City where they will vie for six seats in the “Sweet 16” Finals of the Champions League.

The league automatically reserved eight seats to the country’s two most prestigious leagues, National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP). (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
