Baguio Football - 11-a side football fires off

LOCAL football squads are set to test the mettle of each other for the Melvin Jones Futbol 11-a side festival at the Melvin Jones football field.

The two day tournament which starts Saturday and ends Sunday will be an open division competition and is open to all football teams free of charge.

However, participating teams who wish to join the tournament must have at least three volunteer referees during each game.

Interested teams may confirm attendance at the venue with games starting at 9 in the morning.

Despite the lack of support and a grass- root development program, Baguio’s love for football is starting to catch-up, thanks to foreigners studying in the Summer Capital and some locals who have embraced the sport.
