Over 4,000 players from 170 participating teams are competing across different age brackets in 16 categories at the Aboitiz Football Cup’s 18th season, which opened last September 4 at the Cebu City Sports Center.
The Cebu Football Association (CFA) has added new categories to include 45 Above (11-aside), Under 21 (11-aside) and Ladies Open (9-aside), which promises even more exciting and action-packed matches.
Philippine Sports Commission Chairman Ramon Fernandez was special guest at the opening ceremony. He was welcomed by AboitizLand President and Chief Executive Officer Andoni Aboitiz, VECO Senior Vice President Anton Perdices, and CFA President Ricky Dakay.
Mr. Perdices said that the Aboitiz Football Cup is part of the Aboitiz Group’s commitment to support the development of Cebu football, an important sport in the holistic development of local youth and athletes.
Matches are held every weekend in five different venues: Cebu City Sports Center, Ateneo de Cebu, Springdale, Don Bosco Technology Center and San Roque football fields.
