PFF to issue licenses for competing teams
THE COUNTRY’S governing body for football, the Philippine Football Federation (PFF), will be issuing licenses to the eight teams that will vie in the inaugural season of the Philippine Football League (PFL), which starts April 29.
The eight clubs have complied with the criteria imposed by the PFF Club Licensing Regulations.
Global Cebu FC, the first professional football team that will be based here in Cebu, is one of the eight teams competing in the PFL. The team is currently vying in the 2017 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League.
Aside from Global Cebu FC, other clubs that will see action in the home-and-away tournament are Ceres Negros FC, Davao Aguilas FC, Ilocos United FC, JPV Marikina FC, Kaya FC-Makati, Stallion Laguna FC and Loyola Meralco Sparks FC.
After getting its respective licenses from PFF, each club will need to sign a franchise agreement with PFF for compliance.
PFF partnered with Red Card Global, an international sports marketing agency based in Singapore, for the tournament’s commercialization. Red Card Global will be tasked to promote the league’s commercial potential locally and internationally.
PFL is also set to sign terms with the People’s Television Network, Inc. (PTV), to be the free-to-air partner for the inaugural season of the PFL.
