MANILA, Philippines – It may be final exams week for Ateneans, but they're all going out to support the Ateneo Blue Eagles who are looking to sweep the University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons in the UAAP Season 81 best-of-three finals series on Wednesday, December 5, at the Araneta Coliseum.
And to what extent is this support? They will be camping out overnight until the ticket booths open at 6 am on Monday, December 3.
According to Ateneo de Manila University's student newspaper The Guidon, there were around 40 people in line near Gate 3.
At 10:04 pm, the line extended to almost 200 people near the gate premises.
The alloted UAAP tickets for Ateneo will be divided among LS students, LS employees, alumni, high school students, grade school students, and professional schools students.
But for those who will not be able to get hold of the highly-coveted tickets, the Rizal Library is providing a live screening of the game on the 5th floor of the Study Hall.
