In 1938, the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) has been established which is a sports organization of eight universities in the Philippines. Each year, teams from universities play in 15 sports. Basketball is the most popular sport, most watched and most supported in the Philippines. Only four out of the eight member universities take part in all sports, namely the Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University-Manila, the University of the Philippines, and the University of Santo Tomas.
