21s AboitizLand Football Cup opens October 13th
Spanning over two decades of developing football at the grassroots level, the country’s longest running football tournament is once again set to bring action in Luzon. The AboitizLand Football Cup (formerly Aboitiz Football Cup) is slated to open on October 13.
In time for its 25th year, AboitizLand rebrands the premier league as it continues to expand its reach together with RSA 1 Group. Coming from the success of AFC Luzon last year, this year’s football tournament will again be hosted at the Aboitiz Pitch inside The Outlets at Lipa in LIMA Estate, Batangas featuring a seven-a-side festival format.
“With the AboitizLand Football Cup and the Aboitiz Pitch as our home venue, we hope to reinforce the Aboitiz group’s objective of supporting the country’s grassroots football development, as well as in promoting continuing education for football practitioners in the region,” said Eduardo Aboitiz, Commercial Business Unit Head of AboitizLand.
“The Aboitiz Football Cup has been providing a platform to highlight the significance of sports in value formation. Beyond honing physical skills, participants are taught the importance of discipline, teamwork, and respect, which are tools to leverage in their everyday lives outside of the football pitch,” added Aboitiz.
A 90-minute drive away from Manila, the Aboitiz Pitch is the largest artificial turf in Luzon. While providing a venue for football enthusiasts, it also complements global sports brands at The Outlets at Lipa. Following global standards, it hosts national football tournaments like the Philippine Football League, Youth Football League, and local tournaments like the Lipa Football League.
The AboitizLand Football Cup will be held Saturdays and Sundays starting October 13 until mid-December. For more information about registration details, visit the Aboitiz Football Cup’s official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AboitizLandFootballCupOfficial.
