Province of Capiz, get ready! The biggest 21-Under Inter-Town basketball league is ready to take center stage on February 5, 2023, in Roxas City.
After a successful On D’ Move (ODM) Sinadya Cup Monster league that received tons of positive feedback from all over Western Visayas, commissioner and founder Jeremiah Obera is back with more fireworks as he brings you the 2023 ODM 21-U Inter-Town Discovery Cup.
The prestigious league will have its highly-anticipated event opening on Sunday at 9 AM to be held at the Capiz Gymnasium.
Composed of 12 participating teams from the town side and three squads from the city side, the upcoming 21-U league will feature the province’s up-and-coming superstars.
Teams included in the town side are Dumalag, Dao, Sapian, President Roxas, Panitan, Panay, Ivisan, Dumarao, Cuartero, Mambusao, Sigma, and Pontevedra.
Meanwhile, CHLARK, MDC x Tony’s Lechon, and MBM Elite will be representing the city side of Roxas.
“This is a big basketball event. Indi na namon ni papa ma tandaan ang last nga Inter-Town diri sa Capiz, we will try to bring back the atmosphere and gusto man namon pakita ang level of skills sang aton mga future stars,” said ODM Sports League commissioner Mr. Obera in an exclusive interview with the Daily Guardian.
A few names from Mr. Obera’s ODM School Wars league that ended several months ago are expected to join and showcase their talent in front of thousands of Capiznons.
According to Mr. Obera, one champion from the town side and one from the city group will duke it out in the grand finals of the U-21 league.
The winner between the best town team and the best city squad will then earn the prize as the “Capiz Ultimate Champion”.
This U-21 Discovery Cup is just a part of ODM Sports League’s series of basketball tournaments in the first half of the year.
After this, another league will cater to the younger generation born from 2005-2010, the ODM x Wilson Sports PH Inter-School competition eyed this March.
Mr. Obera and the rest of the ODM Sportswear team would like to thank Mr. Almond Cajefe, Senior Brand Manager of Wilson Sports PH, and Fitness Lockdown.
