FEU will look to defend crowns in Season 77
Itís off to the pitch once again for the metroís best collegiate booters, as a brand new UAAP Football season begins this coming Saturday, November 29. Far Eastern University made history back in Season 76 by capturing all three division championships, and surely be looking to defend them in Season 77. This year, the menís division will receive an added boost in competition, as Adamson University re-joins the fray after a 10 year absence. The Tamaraw Booters team, who went 11-1 last season en route to a championship, will remain this yearís favorites as Season 76 MVP Paolo Bugas, Best Midfielder Arnel Amita, and Best Striker Jesus Meliza will be suiting up for the green and gold again this year. Last yearís runners-up UP will also return as strong title contenders, with Season 76 Best Goalie Ace Villanueva, Rookie of the Year Francisco Primo Santos, and Gerardo Valmayor back in the lineup. The menís division kicks off on Saturday, November 29 with UP taking on De La Salle at 4pm and Ateneo facing UE at 6pm. The womenís division remains a five-team tournament, with defending champions FEU aiming for a repeat. They will have to do it however, without the services of Season 76 MVP Mae Sullano. The team now falls on the shoulders of last seasonís Best Midfielder and Best Striker Barbie Sobredo. UST will also look to book a repeat trip to the finals, with Season 76 Best Defender Jena Abuan and Best Goalie Rara Luna anchoring the Tigressesí defense.
