  1. I been adding clubs name where I know it . Still missing news about many local qualifiers

    1. Very unfortunate that local media is not reporting the regional qualifiers, especially in Luzon provinces. Local clubs should be given notice too, not just the Manila-based UFL.

  2. Im not sure about the NCR qualifiers from August 22 ?

  3. Visayas clubs will join after Luzon and Mindanao clusters. Ceres FC represents NOFA , Stallion for Iloilo , Laos FC for Leyte . NORFA not competing , Cebu ?

  4. Global Fc to participate as one of the three UFL clubs , or will they be dropped because they did not join local Leyte qualifiers ?

    1. Hope so! The PFF should not allow Global to switch between FAs as they please!
