In an interview at the Cebu City Sports Center during the opening of the Palarong Pambansa on Tuesday, Garcia expressed his intention to reward athletes who will bring pride to the City.

This means that the majority of the athletes comprising Central Visayas are from Cebu City. Thus, a cash incentive would be necessary to boost their morale in their bid to top the overall medal standings of the Palaro that had long been dominated by the National Capital Region (NCR).

Mandaue City, which also has a significant number of athletes representing Region 7 in Palarong Pambansa already announced its plan to provide them with P5,000 cash allowances to use for the duration of the meet.

On top of that, the gold, silver, and bronze medalists will receive P10,000, P7,000, and P5,000, respectively.
