PFL Starts a New Professional Football Revolution in the Philippines


Chairman Abraham Kahlil B. Mitra signed the certificates for the first ever Philippine Football League last May 2, at the Games and Amusement Board office.

Football is now one of the sports which will be playing with a professional license alongside basketball, golf, horse racing, tennis, cockfight, dance sports, cycling, billiard, volleyball, boxing, mixed martial arts, table tennis and bowling are the current roster of sports regulated by Games and Amusement Board.

In a press conference held last May 2 at the Games and Amusement Board office, Chairman Mitra and GAB Commissioners sat down to talk about GAB's plans for football and many more opportunities that the sport will have because of this expansion. After talking about it's plans, Mitra signed the certificates for the teams under PFL who will be recipients of this development.

Present at the occasion is PFF President Mariano Araneta and some football players who received their professional licenses during the event.

The Philippine Football League or PFL will be the first ever professional National football league in the country, supplanting the United Football League, which was previously the de facto tier league.

The PFL will follow a home-and-away, double round-robin format. The top four teams will advance to the play-off round dubbed as the "Finals Series" to determine the champions of the league.

The PFL will only have one division to start with however the plan is to expand and have a second division. The UFL will serve as the second tier competition or youth league to the PFL.

The Philippine Football Federation has an agreement with the People's Television Network to broadcast matches of the league which started April 2017.

The teams that are currently under the Philippine Football League are Ceres-Negros Football Club, Global Cebu Football Club, Ilocos United Football Club, JP Voltes Marikina Football Club, Kaya Football Club-Makati, Davao Aguilas Football Club, Meralco Manila Football Club and Stallion Laguna Football Club.

Forming a professional football league has been long overdue as football players deserve a bigger stage to showcase their skills. Football communities and fans are certainly elated with this development as this could be a start of a new revolution in Philippine Football.
