CLARK FREEPORT — At least 18 teams from different countries in Asia will be competing against each other in the upcoming Asia-Pacific (ASPAC) Little League 2013 here, the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) announced. CDC Tourism Promotions Office Manager Noemi B. Garcia said the event is slated from June 30 to July 8 and will be held at the CDC Parade Grounds.
Garcia added that the teams competing during the ASPAC competition are China, Chinese Taipei, and Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Jordan, India, Kuwait, New Zealand, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates.
All teams from other countries are expected to arrive on June 30. In anticipation of erratic monsoon rains, Garcia said the game schedules may change in case inclement weather disrupts the sports activities. As part of Clark’s tourism activities slated for the second half of the summer season, Garcia said the hosting of the ASPAC games here is expected to boost the Freeport’s image as the choice sports tourism destination north of Manila.
