Aboitiz Football moved

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

THE biggest football tournament in Cebu, the 16th Aboitiz Football Cup, 
won’t be kicking off this Sunday.
“The opening ceremony of the 16th Aboitiz Football Cup originally 
scheduled for Nov. 10  will be moved to a later date. 
This was the consensus reached by the Aboitiz Foundation 
and the Cebu Football Association (CFA) in view of the ongoing relief
 operations for the earthquake victims of Bohol and Cebu. 
The Aboitiz Foundation is involved in relief operations 
and the CFA supports the drive to help the victims recover quickly,” 
wrote CFA in an official statement yesterday.
“Both the Aboitiz Foundation and CFA deem it proper that out 
of delicadeza and the 
need to provide assistance to Bohol, the date of the opening of 
Cebu’s premier football tournament be moved. The new date will be
 announced next week.”
A total of 154 teams, clubs and schools have signed up in 14 different 
divisions for 
the annual football meet.
One of the highlights of the opening match this Sunday was 
supposed to be the exhibition match between elite United Football 
League clubsLoyola Meralco Sparks FC and Green 
Archers United FC
