The City of Koronadal manifested its intention to bid for 2015 Palarong Pambansa. In an interview during the city’s regular radio programs “Koronadal Boom…Boom…Boom” and “Kanami Koronadal”, City Mayor Peter B. Miguel said that he had already submitted to the Department of Education his Letter of Intent this early when he attended the recently concluded Palarong Pambansa 2012 in Lingayen, Pangasinan.

The city needs an ambitious activity like this as a way of promoting the City of Koronadal itself and the province of South Cotabato as a whole according to the mayor. He added that it was very timely to let the people coming from all walks of life know that the city, the capital of the province of South Cotabato, is one of the happiest and peaceful places in Mindanao and especially now that it has become the seat of Region XII, the city is positively fast progressing as well as expected.

PBM believes that the city has the capacity to host such a big event owing to the success of two (2) same sports events held here before. It must be recalled that the province first hosted the Palarong Pambansa in 1996 during the administration of former South Cotabato Governor Hilario de Pedro III and the latest was in 2007 during the administration of former City Mayor Fernando Q. Miguel.

Further, PBM also expressed his confidence that with the support and close coordination with the provincial government of South Cotabato, Palarong Pambansa 2015 here in the city would prove even better than the previous ones given the chance to prepare this early.

Meanwhile, Miguel was in Lingayen, Pangasinan during 2012 Palarong Pambansa to show his personal support and to give financial assistance to the athletes and coaches coming from the City of Koronadal and to personally hand in his letter of intent for the city’s bid to host said event in 2015.
