CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Central Visayas Football Association’s (CVFA) U19 squad is gearing up for the upcoming Philippine Football Federation (PFF) U19 Boys National Championships Group Stage Division 1 that will be held here in Cebu.

Last year, CVFA also hosted this major PFF youth tournament which saw its U19 team finishing fourth overall after losing to the visiting Panay Football Association (PFA) in their bronze medal match at the Dynamic Herb-Borromeo Sports Complex.

This time, CVFA made early preparations to prevent a repeat of last year’s shortcomings as the tournament is set to kick off on May 21 at the same venue.

This will be followed by their match on May 23 against the Zamboanga del Norte Dipolog Regional Football Association (Zandirfa), and PFA on May 25.

Moreover, Josephril Partosa, CVFA’s marketing committee head, is urging Cebuano football fans anew to support the team’s upcoming PFF campaign  by buying their merchandise and kits.

Partosa said that they’re currently accepting sponsors, donors, and generous people who are willing to support the team. Some of those who already helped are Fenestram, Island Paints, and Phelps Dodge.
