    Another cockpit up in Iloilo City

    PHILIPPINES


    Another cockpit up in Iloilo City
    By Lydia C. Pendon

    THE City Council unanimously approved on Friday a franchise to put up the second modern cockpit arena at Mandurriao district to rival the existing Iloilo Coliseum in Jaro.

    Businesswoman Marjorie Maranon will put up the second cockpit that will virtually close the door for other prospective applicants to put up a high-end cockpit in the city.

    As provided in Presidential Decree (PD) 1320 as amended, it allows only two legalized cockpit in a local government unit (LGU).

    Proposed by City Councilor Lyndon Acap, the Mandurriao cockpit will be solely owned by Maranon in a 3,000 land area along Q. Abeto St., Mandurriao.

    The City Council approved the Acap resolution during its regular session after several postponements and further study of the proposal.

    Maranon will have a five-year franchise after showing compliance of all requirements for a cockpit operation in Mandurriao.

    Acap said the cockpit is located in a reasonable distance from the church and schools. It also has its own access roads and parking spaces.

    Iloilo City can also impose amusement tax from the cockpit operation.

    Cockfighting remains a favorite past time of the Ilonggos. Big cockfight tournaments costing millions of pesos on bets are usually held at the Iloilo Coliseum especially during the Jaro fiesta on first week of February every year.

    That's good!!!! This will give time to Iloilo City Coliseum management to improve their facilites especially their bathroom.... I hope they do..
    But 3,000 sq meters for the cockpit? I think they will need 8X more than that.. otherwise forget it....

    A friend called last night to inform me about this plan to build a new cockpit near Iloilo coliseum. I was attending Lab-asero's b-day party and it so happened that Mr. Chito Tinsay, owner of Iloilo coliseum, was in the party also so I took that oppurtunity to ask his opinion about that new development. He just shrugged his shoulder and said that he doesn't really give a lot of thoughts about it. He said that the area was for years been used as a "tupadahan" and that the owner has applied for permit to build a cockpit a few years ago. No wonder he wasn't surprised by the news at all. I don't think that when the new cockpit starts to operate it will make any impact on the Candelaria derby. But it is a welcome development to all Ilonggo cockers for sure.
