University sports facilities in the Philippines were used in all sports activities: the academic program like the degree programs in Physical Education (PE) and Sports, and Service PE, the non-academic programs such as sports varsity, sports clubs, and community use. The different nature of these set-up involving both internal and external users caused conflicts in scheduling and operations, specifically in sports degree programs and service PE classes as the classes were displaced. The concerns in management, utilization, and provision of sports facilities in the academe are the main reasons for this study. The intention of this paper is to investigate the management strategies of the Universities on the utilization of sports facilities. The researcher utilized a multiple case study approach. Two (2) levels were used: (1) individual case analysis and (2) cross-case analysis. This methodology explored the experiences and narratives of administrators regarding their management strategies, specifically on the utilization of sports facilities. The analysis method used is the thematic analysis guided by Collaizi's Seven-Step Method. The areas investigated were the management strategies which generated several themes: involvement in the university sports facility projects, implementation of guidelines in utilizing sports facilities, and reinforcement in collaboration engagements. This study's output is not a set of recommendations but policy, practice, and a set of doable actions on managing sports facilities.
