It involves primarily the gamefowl breeders all over the Philippines as well their handlers, gaffers, farm managers, and farm helps that relies specifically to the number of fightingcocks produced in a year to survive poverty. It also includes the veterinary and feed companies, the cockpits in every city, the media, together with the TV Shows and magazines as well as common vendors and sellers we see each and every day the cockpit opens.

SABONG TV promotes Sabong Tourism
Sabong can be considered an industry based on what it has done to Bacolod, the Cockfighting Capital of the World. When the sugar and prawn industry’s sudden collapse in the mid-90’s, the Breeders of Bacolod prevented such economic disaster by exporting their produce all throughout the Philippines. Today, Bacolod is the major exporter of gamefowl breeding materials. Aside from this, Cockfighting big event during Masskara Festival as well local-initiated Stag Derbies have dramatically increased Bacolod’s tourism industry. Sabungeros bring their families to such event to either participate to the derbies or enjoy the festivities together with their families. Similar celebrations were staged by other cities such as the Magayon Festival in Albay, the Araw ng Dabaw in Davao, Dinagyang Festival in Cebu and many others. These events were in collaboration together with the Tourism Industry and the Gamefowl Derby organizers to create a much-awaited awareness campaign. Sabong TV together with local gamefowl organizations are united in alleviating the Tourism Industry by discovering more Travel destinations and festivals to be featured on the Show. Sabong TV is the only sabong show that travels all over the Philippines to feature local festivals as well as tourist spots for the Filipinos to discover.
