UFL Introduces New Additions to Exciting Upcoming Season

The United Football League completed a whole day planning session on August 30 to streamline the highly anticipated 2014-15 UFL season. With the Football Alliance, the organizing body of the UFL, in full force, the group emerged from the
affair with plenty of excitement for the nation’s premier football competition.
“With the planning process complete, preparations for the coming 2014-15 season are now in full swing,” said UFL General Manager Rely San Agustin. “A few major adjustments have been agreed upon, such as close coordination with the PFF to make sure we are aware of the Men’s National Team schedule, ensuring conflicts no longer become an issue. We’ve also taken the first steps to align our league schedule with other ASEAN countries, a major move to professionalize the UFL. We’re also going to run the UFL Cup and League simultaneously in 2015, an endeavor which has never been done in the country before.”
Aside from the massive undertakings to improve the United Football League’s calendar, San Agustin revealed thrilling new prospects for the nation’s rapidly-growing base of football fans.
“A lot of new activities have been planned to help promote the UFL. One major highlight this coming season is the UFL All-Star Weekend which is set for May 2015. The possibility of staging the first provincial game in the Visayas region is also in the works. Right now, we are preparing for the FA League Cup to kick off the season. We have 14 clubs participating and this will be the first time that we will be implementing an FA League Cup draw starting from the group stages all the way to the Semi-finals,” said San Agustin. “Overall, this promises to be an exciting season as all our plans are geared towards solidifying the UFL as the country’s premier league.”
The first ever FA League Cup, the season’s first tournament, is set to kickoff on September 20, with the draw for the 14 participating clubs scheduled to take place on Thursday (Sept 4), 2:30pm, on New Media Factory’s (www.nmftv.com) football podcast, Hans-on. The draw will see the 14 clubs separated into two groups of seven, where the top four will advance to the quarterfinals. Separate draws will take place before the quarterfinals and semi-finals to determine which clubs will face off.
When 2015 comes around, Filipino football fans can look forward to roughly 240 senior matches, with over 500 Youth games in seven different age categories.
