The Philippine Sports Tourism Awards (PSTA) has once more cited Clark as “sports tourism destination of the year”.

The PSTA bestowed the award to Clark for hosting more than 200 events since last year that included fun run, marathon, triathlon, and duathlon and games such as football and baseball, cycling and other sports-related activities.

Aside from this, Clark is also a preferred destination for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibits (MICE).

This is the second time that Clark was given recognition by the PSTA.

In 2015, Clark was also named as the Destination of the Year by PSTA, citing its record of making 112,069 tourists visit the Freeport through several outdoor sports activities.

Noel Manankil, president and chief executive officer of Clark Development Corporation (CDC), together with CDC tourism manager Noemi Julian and assistant manager Elenita Lorenzo received the award during the third edition of the Sports Tourism Awards held Tuesday night at the Grand Wing Lounge of Resorts World Manila.

Manankil thanked the PSTA for recognizing Clark as a premier destination.

He also encouraged the various organizations involved in sports-tourism management to visit Clark and explore the newly-built sports facilities in New Clark City (NCC).

“On behalf of the Clark family, Clark Development Corporation, Clark International Airport, and our parent company Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), we would like to thank you (PSTA) for this award. I would also like to extend a personal invitation to all of you (sports-tourism management organizations) to visit Clark Freeport and New Clark City where you will see new sports facilities that we Filipinos will be very proud of,” he said in a statement.

For his part, PSTA founder Charles Lim said the Sport Tourism Awards is an opportune event especially with the staging of the Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) in the country.

He also highlighted the modern sports facilities at the NCC.

“I feel that it also very timely that they have upgraded the sports facilities in the country and for those of you who have not seen the facilities in New Clark City such as the stadium and aquatics center, I urge you to visit these magnificent facilities and I’m sure you will be very proud of it”, he said.

The PSTA was organized by the Selrahco Management, in partnership with the Department of Tourism, Primetime Group, and Philippine Sports Commission. (PNA)
