Gamefowl breeders test their new battlestags for 2019 as the first ever “Bakbakan Early Bird 9-Stag Derby” goes full blast in five more venues this month.

The upcoming schedules: July 25 at Sta. Monica Cockpit (Bulacan Gamefowl Breeders Association); July 27 at Gallera de Mandaue (Sugbo United Gamefowl Breeders Organization) and Alixandria Cockpit (Zamboanga Gamefowl Breeders Association);

July 29 at Bacolor Cockpit (Kapampangan Gamefowl Breeders Association) and July 31 at Pangasinan Coliseum (Breeders Association of Pangasinan-Pangasinense Inc.).

The event’s format: 2 -stag elims; 3 -stag semifinals and 4 -stag finals.Guaranteed prize is R10 million for an entry fee of P5,500.

Organized by the International Federation of Gamefowl Breeders Associations (FIGBA), the ‘early bird’ series is a firestarter to the annual “National Bakbakan 12 -Stag Derby” which starts in October.

FIGBA president Ricoy Palmares Jr. said participants are assured of uniformity and fair play since only FIGBA ‘early bird’ stags and locally-banded stags from FIGBA member associations will be accepted.

“This policy is in effect since the start of ‘Bakbakan’ in 2001,” said Palmares.
