Also expected to attend the WVRAA opening are Bacolod City Mayor Evelio "Bing" Leonardia, six provincial governors in Western Visayas and Department of Education (DepEd) regional officials, among others.
"The hosting again of Capiz of the WVRAA after three years is an opportunity and pride for Capiceños that we will try to make all necessary measures for the success of the event," said Capiz Gov. Victor Tanco in the province's "Pag-ulikid" newsletter.
The province's Villareal Stadium which will be the main venue of the 18 sporting events boasts of its facilities like Capiz Gym, rubberized track oval, swimming pool and 2 courts each for sepak takraw, volleyball, outdoor basketball, and lawn tennis, among others.
