LOOKS like we won't be seeing a sea of blue and green in Tuesday's UAAP rivalry game between Ateneo and De La Salle.
Both school administrations released a public announcement urging their supporters to wear pink in the marquee game in support of Vice-President Leni Robredo's bid for the presidency in the May elections.
"On Tuesday, we wear pink. Fr. Bobby and Br. Bernie encourage Ateneans and Lasallians for Leni to wear pink during the coming Ateneo-La Salle game," both DLSU and ADMU announced on social media.
For the record, this isn't the first time that the UAAP arch-rivals are ditching their school colors to make a statement.
In 2016, the two private universities wore black during the rivalry game in condemnation of the extrajudicial killings under the Duterte administration.
As far back in 2009, they also shifted to yellow to commemorate the death of the late president Cory Aquino.
The unbeaten Blue Eagles meet the Green Archers to open second round of the eliminations on Tuesday, 7:00 PM at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
