Finally, the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) Festival of Football (FOF) after three years of no activity in football is back.

Supported by the Japan Football Association led by PFF Consultant for Youth Development Tetsuya Tsuchida, the event was a developmental competition designed to identify talents in all parts of the Philippines for ages 12-16 years old boys and girls.

Dave Javellana, Head of the Grassroots of the Philippines hailed Gov. Ramon V. Guico III who, is also the President of Pangasinan Football for his support to football and to sports in general.

“I know the governor is pushing sports not only to develop good athletes but also athletes with character and good values in and outside the pitch,” he said.

On a similar note, Javellana finds the host facilities excellent for football.

He likewise commended Pangasinan to be the best venue and host.

“I think, I would say, we are on a very good start, especially with your hosting, and, it sets the standard of what football should be in the entire country,” Javellana further added.

Ending the brief interview, he urged athletes to continue working hard, continue dreaming and aspiring to be the best player you can become, to get good education in the future, to get scholarship and to be part of the national team or even play professional.

During the opening, Arnaiz reminded the players and coaches to give their best but play as one family in football.
