The tournament comes on the heels of the National Women's Selections Football Tournament that drew to a close yesterday at the Panad pitch of the Panaad Sports and Recreational Park in Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City with 13 teams competing, 6 each in both the Under 19 and Under 14 divisions.

The U19 squad will see action in the AFC Asian Qualifying event which will still be set in a specific venue in November. (HCV)
