The United Football League announced that the Cup final between League champion Global and Penson Stallion Giligan’s will be played on Monday at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.
The Cup title match between Global and Stallion is slated at 7:15 p.m. and will be preceded by the battle for third place game between the Loyola Meralco Sparks and Green Archers United Globe at 5:15 p.m.
The UFL moved last November the schedule of the Cup final to give way to the Philippine national men’s football team’s preparations for the 2012 ASEAN Football Federation Suzuki Cup this month, with the new date depending on the Azkals’ performance in the tournament. A number of players participating in the league’s final are also members of the national team.
Last Wednesday, the Azkals bowed to Singapore in the semifinals of the Suzuki Cup to end their stint in the tournament.
Admission is free for the Cup final which will also be shown live on AKTV.
