PHILIPPINE UAAP - HISTORY

The University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP), established in 1938 is a sports association of eight universities in the Philippines. Each year, teams from universities play in 14 sports.

The UAAP was founded by four universities: Far Eastern University, National University, the University of the Philippines, and the University of Santo Tomas. At present, the UAAP has eight member universities, all located in Metro Manila.

Member universities compete in 14 sports. Basketball, being the most popular sport in the Philippines, is the most watched and most supported among all the sports.

Most of these sports have Men's and Women's divisions, with the exception of baseball, in which only men participate, and softball, which is for women only. Almost all of the sports also have a Junior division, in which the associated high schools of the universities participate.

As of now, only four of the eight member universities participate in all sports, namely the Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University-Manila, the University of the Philippines, and the University of Santo Tomas.
