The Fall Sports Meeting in the Philippine capital Manila is coming to an end.
The event, a showcase of all things Filipino sports, is scheduled to be held in 2019, with the event being held at the Philippine Sports Centre.
The Philippines hosted the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang in 2012, but has yet to host a Summer Olympics.
According to a report by the Philippine National Police (PNP), the Philippine Summer Games were not successful due to lack of venues.
“We were not able to host the Winter Olympic Games in 2020, so we decided to host our Fall Sports meet in 2019,” said PNP spokesman Major Jose Manuel Villar.
Miguel Diaz, president of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), was the first official representative of the Association to speak out on the matter, and said he would be holding an online conference on the topic.
