Globe Football Para sa Bayan kicked off last July 6-7 at the ASCOM football field, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City with football hero Chieffy Caligdong at the helm.

Globe Football Para sa Bayan served as a meeting place for all passionate football players coming from different club teams in Metro Manila. “We expect every participant to play the game with spirit, joy, and skills that make football beautiful,” said Caligdong who is also the sports ambassador for the telecommunications company.

Students ages 9-18 from 75 football clubs in Manila participated in the 7 a-side football festival which involves smaller pitch and goal posts. Professional units also joined the activity including the Green Archers United Globe where Caligdong plays as left winger.

According to Caligdong, aside from providing a venue to hone the talents of young athletes, Globe Football Para sa Bayan also helps the Philippine Football Federation scout for new players.

“We hold tournaments like this so that we can recommend potential players to the national team including those for the under 13, under 16, under 19, and under 23 categories. We also do this to give players a chance to play for the country,” he added.

The Metro Manila Globe Football Para sa Bayan is the third football festival spearheaded by Caligdong this year, starting with his hometown of Barotac Nuevo, Iloilo, followed by Cebu.
