MANILA, Philippines – There’s no NBA superstar this time, but UAAP Season 82 host school Ateneo de Manila University still made sure to put on a show when it declared the league officially open.
Unlike last year when Steph Curry lent glitter to the opening ceremonies, the UAAP still unveiled a lighting spectacle exuding a futuristic theme at the Mall of Asia Arena on Sunday, September 1.
Hosted by volleyball star-turned-celebrity host Gretchen Ho, the event also featured Ateneo homegrown performance groups Blue Babble Battalion, The Company of Ateneo Dancers, OPM artists Spongecola and The Itchyworms to entertain the fans and communities of the 8 UAAP member schools.
