  • Philippine Football Peace Cup Champions: AZKALS

    Congratulations to the Philippine Azkals for winning the Philippine Football Peace Cup. Another milestone and a step forward for Philippine football. While the Azkals were overwhelming favorites for this tournament, they still needed to prove that point nonetheless and they did so emphatically and convincingly. Three wins, 9 goals scored in 3 matches and conceding only one goal was quite a strong message sent out by our tea...


    As part for the preparations of the upcoming AFF 2012 Suzuki Cup tournament, the Philippine Men’s National Football Team also known as the Azkals engaged in a series of friendlies away from home against Cambodia, Singapore and Laos from 5-10 September 2012. A scoreless draw against Cambodia, a historic 2-0 win against Singapore and a 1-2 loss to Laos. Notwithstanding the fantastic win versus Singapore, I’d...

  • Home Ground - Football Stadium in Philippines

    A bit of news being passed around several months ago was House Bill 4298, which appropriates 300 million pesos for the construction of a 75,000-capacity world-class football stadium in the Philippines.

We would have a proper home ground for our national football teams. A 75,000-capa...

  • Home and Away: Azkals vs Indonesia

    It was supposed to be a friendly but one couldn't be faulted for thinking there was a lot more at stake. A bench clearing fracas and 3 red cards surely added to the passion and tension on the field of play. Well, considering that pride was at stake and both sides had points to prove, that alone ups the ante considerably. A rivalry in the making perhaps? I wouldn't mind at all, because to be embroiled in a football ri...

  • Honors Even Between the Azkals and Tigers

    It was a well earned nil-nil draw that the Philippine Azkals got out of their friendly match against the Malaysian Tigers. It was a considerably commendable feat, especially when we take into account the fact that in four previous matches the Philippines played on Malaysian turf it all ended in defeat for our side. The Philippines is definitely no longer the whipping boys of Southeast Asia and the Azkals continue to show marke...

  • A Bright Spark for the UFL

    It’s been billed as historical and there’s no mistake about that. A Philippine football club is competing in an international club tournament, a development that would be a great boost, or should we say, a bright spark for the United Football League (UFL). The occasion is the 2012 edition of the Singapore Cup football tournament. It is the 15th staging of this annual tournament and UFL 1st Division team Loyola M...
