After months of waiting, cockfighting afficionados can now have a sigh of relief after Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Rolando “Klarex” Uy signed Executive Order No. 038-2022 allowing the resumption of licensed cockpit operators in the city. As a policy, only indiividuals who are fully vaccinated and with booster shots will be allowed entry. A vaccination area will be designated for those who want to get inoculated.

Strict health protocols such as wearing of face masks and physical distancing will be enforced. Any violations shall be ground for immediate revocation and cancellation of Business Permit and stoppage of cockpit operations. Read below.


Shown below is Lumbia Octagon Sports Arena located in Lumbia, Cagayan de Oro City, considered the newest and most modern facility in the city.


With the approval, resumption of cockpit operations is set this Saturday, August 20.
