Bringing another dimension to the Iloilo sports scene, the 1st Inland Fishing Tournament kicks off today.

Previously, the Iloilo City Government catered to the Ilonggo skaters by organizing the successful Mayor Treñas Skateboarding Cup, this time it will be the fishing enthusiasts’ turn.

The fishing tournament will launch today at 4 pm until 7 pm at the La Paz Plaza Lagoon.

In line with this, the Iloilo City Sports Development Division is calling all fishing enthusiasts to proceed to their office and register. The first 50 participants will be catered as the registration is on a first come first served basis.

With this fishing tournament, the Iloilo city government aims to attract tourists and promote an active lifestyle to the Ilonggos.
