The 74th season of the UAAP officially kicked off last Saturday, June 10, at the Marikina Sports Complex, with Ateneo De Manila University officially serving as hosts in this year’s ceremony.
Marching around in an Olympic style ceremony probably wasn’t the best idea given the weather, but it proved to work out for the best when students and athletes alike proudly displayed their university jackets and umbrellas, resulting to a campy and colorful display of collegiate pride.
News of the opening games must be apparent by now – the FEU Tamaraws defeated the DLSU Green Archers during the first game, while the ADMU Blue Eagles survived the ADU Falcons on the second. Day 1 however, we duly covered in photos. Check out the events that took place during the UAAP season 74 opener:
