Marawi deserves to host ARMMAA


With the support of multi-sectoral leaders of Marawi City and the Province of Lanao del Sur, the Marawi City bid to host next year’s Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Athletic Association (ARMAA) Meet is timely apt and the Islamic city deserves it considering its expedient location.


Marawi is a traditional city living in contemporary modernity. Its communication and transportation system cannot be left behind by the other localities in the region. It has big public and private schools including madaris (Arabic schools) that can house thousands of people.

It has a big market, the Padian, that serves anything from raw foods to construction materials or practically anything to buy, thanks to Market Superintendent Samer Salic. It has also markets, both wet and dry, found in strategic populated parts to serve the buying public.

Marawi City is the home of Mindanao State University System (MSUS), the biggest university in the region. The state university has the biggest oval area suitable for sport games and competitions. Its swimming pools are suitable for swimming derbies.

Within the university campus is the renowned Marawi Resort Hotel which can billet VIPs and officials. There are school buildings that can accommodate thousands of people. There is the MSU commercial center that is now serving the buying public in all their basic commodity needs.


Marawi City is the home of the Philippine Army 103 Brigade under the command of Col. Glenn Macasero who is distinguished in maintaining peace and order in the area for the welfare of the residents as well as tourists and visitors of the city.

The Lanao del Sur Provincial Police Office (LDSPPO) under PSSupt. Nickson Muksan and the Marawi City Police Director PSupt. Christopher W. Panapan will not tolerate any untoward incident to happen during the ARMMAA Meet, They have proven their prowess ever since they have been based in Marawi City.


Marawi City has a climate that no other locality in the region has enjoyed. The coolness of the city makes it the Summer Capital of the south. It is a typhoon free city and people need not worry of any natural disaster.

There are so many tourist spots unique in the area. The Lake Lanao itself which is the source of electricity that energizes more than two-thirds of Mindanao is one tourism nature that cannot be equalled.

The historical landmarks like the place where the myth heroes and villains fought in the Darangen era are spots worth visiting. The sleeping beauty mountain is seen vividly in a distance is an experience for the beholders.

With these state of affairs and conditions, there is no reason why Marawi City cannot be the host to next year’s Palarong ARMM.
