“By June 1, we are starting with Season 84. We will have some surprises, including Cignal TV. All of our fans will be waiting for those surprises,” said UAAP Season 83 president Emmanuel Calanog during the first episode of UAAP Talk.

“I personally have received my two doses. Education with regards to vaccination is one of the focuses of our webinars with our team captains so that we can encourage our athletes to be vaccinated. It will be the one that will make sure our athletes can compete in Season 84.”

While the executive director Rebo Saguisag shared that their plans were already approved by the CHED.

“At the CHED level, approved na kami. With the rollout of the vaccines, it’s safe to say, I guess dadali. Ang tinitignan namin with the vaccines is not just the return to training, but now the return of competition. With the vaccine rollout, mag-iiba yung premise mo e,” he shared.

However, the league needs to wait for the go signal from the IATF in which Calanog is looking optimistic saying that the vaccine roll-out is a ‘game-changer.’

“The game-changer here is the vaccines.”

UAAP is looking to vaccinate the whole community with an estimate of 4,000 recipients.
