Since PH Football is rising, we should now also take a look about the other football stadiums in Philippines for a possible Azkals game to held outside Manila in the future so that Azkaleros based in provinces can see Azkals in action live. This could be a venue of Azkals actions if they will play in Zamboanga City in the future.

Grandstand rehab to finish December– DPWH assures Beng Wednesday, 08 June 2016 13:46
By SHEILA COVARRUBIAS
The Department of Public Works and Highways has assured Mayor Beng Climaco that the grandstand rehabilitation will be completed as scheduled on December 2016.
Mayor Climaco Tuesday morning together with OIC City Administrator Dr. Elmeir Apolinario, City Engineer Luis Despalo and staff from the City Engineer’s Office and other personnel conducted an ocular inspection of the grandstand to check on the progress of the project which started first week of April.
The chief executive said the reopening of the grandstand, known as the Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Sports Complex, will be a big boost to the city’s youth and sports development program.
The project is implemented by a private contractor under the supervision of the DPWH Regional Office.
Shadimar Jalaidi, Engineer II of the DPWH said the project is right on track and will be completed as scheduled. He said the DPWH engineers monitor the progress of the project on a regular basis.
The project costs P187 million allocated by the national government with a duration of less than 10 months. Its project contractor is the RCDG joint venture with RU Aquino.

One of the football coaches at our college told a friend of mine that our Palaro games next year would be held here, as it will be ready by that time. and also, if ever Zamboanga City will join the inaugural PFL this will be our home stadium. I'm hoping Mega sardine,KCC mall and other major companies that operates here would sponsor a team.
Based from the news here, it looks like the opening of the Stadium wilk be moved to December as they're still waiting the Artificial grass from Germany as the PSC and the supplier still needs to sign the contract. Why they didn't get a local supplier instead?

BoyBacolod: If some UAAP or NCAA schools will join the new league in one form or another, it may remove the gap between U22s and seniors. The schools can devise a system akin to sports academies, education is important after all.

BoyBacolod: Will the PFL be like the San Marino league system, where there are no so-called "home" stadiums.

leoisiah: Gibraltar also has a single stadium for their league.

BoyBacolod: Rules are rules are rules. The two clubs should have known better. They are given loads of time to act on it. And to those who say PFF sucks, sometimes they do but one thing they are consistent is sticking to the rules.

BoyBacolod: Why I like UAAP football, no more extra games for seeding.Makes me think about European efficiency. Wish gayahin din sa basketball (very sketchy tiebreakers), like Euroleague.

@BoyBacolod: Hamak na mungkahi lang. Mabuti siguro kung maipromote ulit ang larong sipa. Daming maling sa sipa na mga bata, mabuting transistion for futsal, kung hindi regular football. Parang sa Thailand, sepak takraw, o chinlone sa Myanmar.

BoyBacolod: As long as Ricky Yanson is professional to Ceres FC and extends support to the Azkals in general (Ceres Azkals in particular) during home games, he can be PFF president in my book. Much better will be reconciling with Leo, though that idea is Farfetch'd.
Sept 21, 2019 23:07:36 GMT 8
BoyBacolod: Kaya fans wishing that Ricky Yanson wins the PFF presidency is akin to GMA fans wishing that Congress and President Duterte will not renew ABS-CBN's franchise.

BoyBacolod: We will wait for the basketball and volleyball ASEAN teams and then we compare their reception to that given to the football delegations, where ALL ASEAN nations participate. Now there will be foreign scrutiny in every move of PHISGOC.

BoyBacolod: DDS trolls underestimated the SEA football community. Having no prior exposure to football culture, they dismiss any and all so-called sabotages as destabilization plots, to the point that they do not support the teams, especially the women.
