THE bid result for the hosting of the 2024 Palarong Pambansa will be known on August 5 during the closing ceremonies of the 2023 Palarong Pambansa in Marikina.

Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said if the province will win the hosting of the 2024 Palarong Pambansa, it will be an extraordinary experience for everyone.

Lacson made the presentation of the province's bid for hosting the annual sports event at the central office of the Department of Education in Pasig City on Friday, July 14.

In his speech, the governor said that the upcoming 2024 Palarong Pambansa is “more than just a resumption of the hosting which Negros Occidental was compelled to abandon during the pandemic."

"The 2024 Palarong Pambansa is a testament to our enduring belief in the ideals of unity, sportsmanship, and the pursuit of excellence," he pointed out.

Lacson highlighted the province's strict adherence to the requirements on playing venues, billeting areas, security, peace and order, health and rescue, accessibility, the cooperation of all socio-economic-political groups, and the willingness to shoulder necessary expenses for hosting.

Lacson said he will not judge the two other presentations when asked about the advantages of having the sports event in the province.

Cebu City led by Mayor Mike Rama and Antique province led by Governor Rhodora Cadiao also made their presentations to host the Palarong Pambansa next year.

"I assured the Palarong Pambansa board that Negros is ready to host in 2024, carrying the experience we have in hosting previous events," Lacson said.

Asked about the chances of Negros Occidental winning the hosting rights in 2024, Lacson said "All three were happy to make our respective presentation."*
