Philippine Sports Commission Chairman William Ramirez said Wednesday that they are ready to release funds for the purchase of competition equipment for the 30th Southeast Asian Games hosting of the country.

As provided for in the tripartite agreement signed by PSC, the POC and the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC), the PSC is ready to transfer said funds to the POC after PHISGOC finalized and submitted their master list of competition equipment requirements for the Games. This will come from the P5 Billion earmarked for the SEA Games.

However, the sports chief was quick to remind that beyond the funding being poured into the country’s SEAG hosting, it is the success in building a united sports community supporting a more dedicated and motivated Filipino athlete and a renewed interest in sports among Filipinos that he regards as true victories in this sports history in-the-making.

“The real victory we gain are the values that we are going to develop among our athletes and country men, through our participation in this Games,” shared Ramirez.

In the last SEAG hosting of the country in 2005, with Ramirez also at the helm of the PSC and also Chef de Mission of Team Philippines, the country took top spot in this biennial event. A feat that many hope to replicate in this 2019 hosting.
