The FEU Cheering Squad took home the 1st runner-up spot, while  NU Pep Squad landed 2nd runner-up. Nicolette Ambulo of the UP Pep Squad earned the Samsung Stunner Award.

In the Group Stunts Competition, the UP Pep Squad won 1st place. The FEU Cheering Squad hit 2nd place, while the NU Pep Squad took the 3rd spot.

Over 19,000 spectators filled up the SM Mall of Asia Arena for the 2012 UAAP Cheerdance Competition.

Congratulations to all the contending teams for a job well done!  All teams really improved in their routines and stunts. There were less pyramids formed compared to last year's, in our observation.

Eight university cheering squads. One champion. Today is THE day, wherein our UAAP cheerleading squads will be showing their best and trying to outshine their competitors in the 2012 UAAP Cheerdance Competition.

Will the number 831 prevail and give the UP Fighting Maroons a tighter hold of last year's UAAP Cheerdance Competition (CDC) champion title? Will the Tigers of Espanya take down the reigning champion in this year's UAAP Cheerdance Competition? Will there be drastic changes and shifts in the rankings of our pep squads?

The UAAP 75 Cheerdance Competition will be held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, September 22 - 2 PM, and will be broadcast LIVE on Studio 23 and BALLSHD 167. Gates will open at 1 PM. To watch the UAAP 75 Cheerdance Competition online, view 2012 UAAP Cheerdance Competition AT STUDIO 23 LIVE STREAM

Because it's September, sports offices in these universities will be very crowded. Demand for UAAP Season 75 Cheerdance Competition tickets has gone high. Sadly, not everyone who wanted to watch can go. It's definitely hard to buy tickets in sports offices of UST, FEU and UP, now that tickets can only be purchased from SM Ticket outlets and online. A lot are anticipating and very much enthusiastic to watch the battles of the strongest three contenders, aside from all the squads' breath-taking pyramids and fierce routines, skills set and abilities. 

During my time, a lot of my friends would usually buy tickets from other universities since there's lesser demand there; in our university, you have to be there as early as you can due to first-come, first-serve basis approach. I don't know if that still applies now. Now, it's centralized.

BEWARE OF SCALPERS WHO INCREASE TICKET PRICES AT LEAST THREE-FOLDS! Prices would sky-rocket hours before the commencement of the UAAP 75 Cheerdance Competition. The normal UAAP Cheerdance tickets are listed here.
