The University of San Agustin in Iloilo City will host the University Games (UniGames) on October 20 to 28, 2014.

UniGames president Roger Banzuela said they are finalizing the playing venues and invitations to different private and government colleges and universities in the country for the annual games’ 19th edition.

This year’s UniGames is supposed to be hosted by Foundation University of Dumaguete City but it begged off due to lack of billeting and playing venues.

Six more private schools may join starting this year, Banzuela added.

The new participants include Arellano University, Philippine Normal University, Wesleyan University in Nueva Ecija, St. Joseph College of Bulacan, San Pedro College of Davao, and Philippine state College of Aeronautics of Pasay City.

Thirteen sports events are tentatively scheduled for the competition, including athletics, badminton, basketball, chess, football, karatedo, lawn tennis, sepak takraw, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, volleyball and beach volleyball. (PNA)
