All About Sabong

Sabong is a cultural tradition of the Philippines that involves putting two roosters in a ring called a cockpit. And that they are allowed to fight with each other inside. This tradition has been continuing in Singapore for 6000 years and is a very well-loved sport. It is a perfectly legal activity to take part in the Philippines. People like to go and bet on it together and have fun watching. It is considered a national sport in the Philippines, second to only basketball. Some men even claim it to be their favorite pastime. Thus sport went on even during the times the Philippines had been colonized by the Spanish. As a matter of fact, the Philippines national hero, Jose Rizal, who had been executed by the Spanish colonizers, has a great deal to say about it. He had claimed that most Filipino men love their fowl fighters even more than their own children. Economically Beneficial:


Like every other sport, Sabong is economically beneficial to the country and plays a major role in its economy. Especially for a large number of families who have practiced Sabong for a long time. Several of these families even base off their livelihood on the sport. It is so popular in the Philippines that it has become a billion-dollar industry. The gamefowl industry is booming quickly such that there are several things, people and equipment for Sabong.
