The De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (CSB) AniGators claimed the crown in the inaugural NCAA HADO Pilipinas Tournament Finals held last Friday (October 25).

The AniGators beat the Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) Crim Pythons to also nab the coveted prize of being the Philippines’ first team representative to the HADO World Championships that will happen in Tokyo, Japan this December. 

The five-member team, who finished the tournament with no recorded loss, is composed of members Niccolo Perez, John Basoc, Jael Dango, Mika Lariosa, and Fiel Julo. The Philippine contingent will face HADO teams from around the world for the international title and cash prize worth ¥2 million.

HADO Pilipinas, a dynamic techno sport that elevates the pulsating challenge of dodgeball by incorporating augmented reality (AR) into the mix, was introduced last July as a breakthrough tournament in the NCAA’s 95th Season. Its entry marked an innovation in local sports from ABS-CBN’s subsidiary, ABS-CBN Themed Experiences, Inc., as it seeks to bring unique Kapamilya experiences in engaging and interactive themed attractions and activities.

Meanwhile, fans will get to experience what it’s like to play HADO in the COSLANDIA 2019 at the SMX Aura this Sunday (November 3), as well as the opening of the HADO Camp inside the ABS-CBN Compound.
