DITO champions homegrown athletes in the biggest sports event of the year in Cebu City.

As a proud co-presenter of Palarong Pambansa 2024, the biggest athletic event in the nation, DITO Telecommunity reaffirms its dedication to building better telecommunities and promoting Filipino talents nationwide. DITO encourages and commemorates the bravery of young athletes as they give it their best and compete in a variety of sporting events together with the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Cebu City local government. 

Since 1948, the Palarong Pambansa has brought together young athletes across the Philippines.  Twelve thousand athletes, coaches, and officials will compete in twenty-two conventional sports, one demonstration sport, and four Para Games this year. The momentous event will also be marked by a number of "firsts," such as the inclusion of dance sports as a regular sport and the first-ever participation of athletes from the Philippine Schools Abroad and the National Academy of Sports. The 2024 Summer Olympics are scheduled to take place in Cebu City from July 11 to July 15, 2024.

A celebration of galing, determination, and diversity 

The Palarong Pambansa has long been a proving ground for the skills, determination, and sportsmanship of young athletes. This year's theme "Beyond Sports," which DITO completely supports. It promotes the athletes' overall growth in both sport and education while fostering stronger relationships between players, their families, and peers. 

We at DITO are always committed to help build a stronger, progressive nation,” said Evelyn Jimenez, Chief Revenue Officer for Consumer Business. “Aligned with the principles behind our GalingDITO campaign, we want to recognize undiscovered talents, champion diversity, and empower more Filipinos to showcase their “Galing.” The Philippines is home to rich natural resources, cultural heritage, and homegrown talents; hence, we aim to put the spotlight on Filipino talent and excellence, especially in this gathering of tremendously talented and spirited young athletes from every corner of the Philippines.” Jimenez added.

More than the gold awaiting victors at the podium, DITO sees the coming together of hearts and talents as the bigger goal of events of this magnitude. "Each young Filipino athlete's talent and tenacity contribute to their individual accomplishments, but taken as a whole, they will help shape an empowering narrative of unity that will positively influence our nation," Ms. Jimenez continued. 

As a co-presenter of Palarong Pambansa 2024, DITO will participate in the Opening Ceremony at the Cebu City Sports Center on July 9, 2024, with DepEd, the participants, their families, coaches, and trainers. 

Attendees may also look forward to exciting activities and special giveaways at the GalingDITO Booths. The highly sought-after Pinoy pop boy band ALAMAT, who are GalingDITO Ambassadors, will also have a fan meet at SM City Cebu on July 7, 2024, as a prelude to the Palarong Pambansa 2024. 

We’re so happy and honored to be here and take part in this year’s Palarong Pambansa. These activities aim to get DITOzens and Cebuanos into the spirit of the games and spread the celebration of Filipino talent and excellence that our GalingDITO platform fully supports,” Jimenez concluded.
