There will be a slam dunk contest, a basketball game of architects and an exhibition game between the City Mayor's Office (CMO) led by Mayor Duterte's executive assistant Christopher 'Bong' Go and Acer Columbia team. Come early so you can get pick a good seat," Tancontian said.

Guevarra added that part of the proceeds of the event will benefit their ongoing build-a-classroom project in Barangay Salumay, Marilog District for the Matigsalog children and the rest will also benefit their three architecture scholars at University of the Mindanao (UM).

Magno said an exciting game awaits Dabawenyos, saying, "Both teams are in good standings. I think Purefoods really want to win while Talk N' Text wants to beat Purefoods. Patayan talaga ito na laban."
