A petition circulating on social media has drawn significant attention as residents of South Cotabato rally to support their Sepak Takraw team. The petition demands that their team be granted the right to compete in the Palarong Pambansa this year after being excluded despite winning the Southern Regional Athletic Association (SRAA) championship few days ago.

The petitioners argue that their team demonstrated exceptional skill and dedication, securing the championship title at the SRAA 2024 held in General Santos City. However, an existing policy has prevented them from participating in the Palarong Pambansa, which supporters deem unfair and contrary to the principles of fair play.

Key Requests in the Petition:
  1. Review and Amendment of the Policy: The petitioners are calling for an immediate review and change of the policy that led to their team's exclusion. They insist that the policy should be adjusted to be more just and consistent with sportsmanship values.
  2. Right to Compete for Champions: The central aim of the petition is to ensure that their champions are allowed to represent Region 12 in the Palarong Pambansa, based on their exemplary performance in the SRAA.
  3. Fair Implementation of Policy Changes: Additionally, the petitioners request that any changes to the policy be implemented in a manner that does not negatively impact the current expectations of the athletes and their supporters.
The residents and supporters of the South Cotabato Sepak Takraw team hope that their plea will be heard and that appropriate measures will be taken to uphold justice and fairness in the sport. Their ultimate goal is to establish a more equitable system for all athletes, particularly for their deserving champions.
