Defending PFF-Smart Club Championship regional champion and host-Negros Occidental Football Association (NOFA) fortifies its preparation ahead of the regional qualifying on November 10-15, 2015 at the Panaad Park and Stadium.
The John Carmona-mentored NOFA pool has been in various venues aside from Panaad for more intensive training.
“We have to make sure to build a strong NOFA side against other Visayan teams from Iloilo FA, Cebu FA, Negros Oriental FA, Capiz FA, Leyte FA, Bohol FA, Calbayog, and Northern Samar,” Carmona stressed.
At present, the NOFA squad is composed of champion Central Philippines State University (CPSU) of San Carlos City alongside several selections from runner-up Ceres-La Salle Varsity, University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos, and College of St. Benilde.
“We are still finalizing the roster. We will announce it on October 3,” he added.
Helping Carmona in the coaching staff are Virgilio Subrado and Jeruel Gines./
