The upcoming National Prisaa games will be in Legazpi City, Albay from July 18 to 26.

“We will try our best to bring all the champions in the 1st Niprisaa to Legazpi City in July. One of the reasons why we’ve put up Niprisaa, is to come up with a brand new sports development program for the entire island. Ang gusto naton matabo nga ini ang aton association is an association that is able to build one another. Let us show the entire country that we are one team,” Moline said.*
