Ilocos Norte now allows licensed cockpits to operate.

CITY OF LAOAG – Governor Matthew Joseph Manotoc of Ilocos Norte has finally permitted licensed cockpits to operate in the province, subject to basic public health regulations.

Cockfighting is only allowed in a licensed cockpit per municipality with a 50% venue capacity, according to Executive Order No. 175-22 signed by Manotoc on February 20. It is only open to properly vaccinated Ilocos Norte inhabitants aged 18 and up.

While inside the ring, he stated, “cashless betting and the usage of technology-based platforms shall be in place, and there shall be no drinking of intoxicating beverages and live streaming.”

Cockpits are only permitted to hold cockfights on one day every week, from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.

However, before participants can access the cockpit arena, a health desk must be set up at the main gate to guarantee that everyone has their immunization cards and passes through the thermal scanning.

Ilocos Norte province has been placed on Alert Level 2 till February 28.

Local government units (LGUs) were previously permitted by the National Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to decide whether licensed cockpits might restart operations in their jurisdictions.

Cockfighting, a popular pastime among Ilocanos, has been prohibited in Manotoc since the outbreak began since it is deemed a superspreader event.
