MANILA, Philippines — University of the East officially took over  the duties as host of the 77th season of the UAAP on Wednesday in the closing ceremonies of season 76.

UE’s Carmelita Mateo, the president of the league for the incoming season, received the UAAP colors symbolic of the transfer of hosting chores from Adamson.

“I would like to express how proud and happy we are to host the upcoming season,” Mateo said in a brief speech at the Century Park Hotel in Manila.

“We congratulate Adamson for hosting a very successful UAAP season 76. Indeed, greatness never ends.”

It was a controversial yet thrilling season for the UAAP mainly because of the two-year residency rule, which even opened a Senate committee hearing.

But it was a fulfilling season for all schools as all of them bagged at least a championship with La Salle taking home the overall crown for the second straight season.

“We hope season 77 will be as successful and I pray without controversies,” Mateo said with a laugh.

She bared that the theme for anticipated UAAP season 77, which opens this July, will be “Unity in Excellence.”

“We aim to prove that UAAP is synonymous to unity and excellence.”
