WORLD SLASHER CUP SEMIS BEGIN TODAY
Tourists Get Free Entrance
Hundreds of foreign tourists, who enjoyed the ‘more-than-the-usual thrill’ that they witnessed last Monday, are expected to troop back to the Araneta Coliseum today together with thousands of cocking aficionados as the semi-finals of the ongoing 2010 World Slasher Cup 8-Cock International Derby unfolds with the victors from Group A, who fought their eliminations last Monday, now separating the men from the boys to get a crack at the championship in their group’s finals on January 22, Friday.
An intrinsic part of Pinoy culture, “sabong” is given a world-class flavor in the World Slasher Cup, the renowned “Olympics of cockfighting.” Considering that this 2010 edition has 240 participants which is the biggest ever in World Slasher Cup history, and recognizing the mounting interest about this colorful facet of Pinoy culture among the international community and its potential as a tourist attraction, Coliseum owner Nene Araneta welcomes tourists to watch the event.
