Inquirer.net apologizes for erroneous photo of Biñan Stadium

“We erroneously reported that the practice field that was in the photos was at the Binan Football Stadium when in fact it was the UP Diliman Football Gym, which was still under construction. We apologize for that mistake,” Inquirer.net wrote.

  • Inquirer.net apologized to Binan LGU for an erroneous photo.
  • Binan City called out Inquirer for the wrong photo used in their article.

Inquirer’s online arm Inquirer.net has apologized for an erroneous photo depicted in its article as the Binan stadium.

On the Instagram account of Binan City Information Office, a screengrab of an Inquirer.net article with an editor’s note apologizing for wrongly attributing the UP football stadium as that of Binan’s was posted.



“We erroneously reported that the practice field that was in the photos was at the Binan Football Stadium when in fact it was the UP Diliman Football Gym, which was still under construction. We apologize for that mistake,” Inquirer.net wrote.

In an online article by Inquirer.net about the Thai football team’s issues about the 2019 South East Asian (SEA) Games, it mistakenly depicted the UP Football Gym as the Binan Football stadium.

That prompted the Binan CIO to call out the online media outlet through a Facebook post on November 26.

“With the active support and keen preparation for the 30th SEA GAMES Football Matches in our City, we strongly refute the article published by INQUIRER.net on November 25, 2019 about Biñan’s football stadium and WE DEMAND AN ERRATUM against this FAKE NEWS.

The City Government of Biñan has been doing its best to be a warm host of the 30th SEA GAMES Football Matches and we will not be mute against irresponsible journalism,” the post said.

Meanwhile on Twitter, netizens shared their dismay and disappointment with the lapse in Inquirer’s reporting.
