The college competitions in Manila, the UAAP and NCAA(varsity and intramurals)and the national competitions have always called it football. It is the official name of the game in the Philippines. Back decades ago when I was still in the Philippines(I lived in Metro Manila), it was also called football in the competitions I played in. Certain American influenced schools and tournaments in Manila and elsewhere, probably called it soccer, but many schools which were trained by Europeans (brothers and priests) who competed in this tournaments, still called it football within their respective school systems. Football in Metro Manila at the youth level, was primarily played by schools(esp. Catholic schools) and became known as a sport played by the elite.
Here in the US, it is primarily and officially, called soccer but it is not uncommon to hear players, coaches and fans refer to it as football or futbol, because of the large immigrant base. The game where you kick a ball around the bases is called kickball here in the US.
As a non Filipino I think the PFF logo is ok, it doesn't stand out but doesn't look bad thought.
If it's just ok because it neither stands out nor doesn't look bad, then I think there is room for an improvement. As I mentioned in my original post, it simply looks dated. IMO, not much creativity was invested in the creation of the logo.
Yeah, logo seems dated and lacks character. Im in favor of coming up with new option designs to replace it.
PFF Logo is ok. There's no need to change. BUT, take note that some NT don't use their federation logo in their kits. Ex. Are indonesia and spain in which they use a logo much closer to their nation's coat of arms. Indonesia use the garuda logo different to the PSSI logo.
So what's plausible is we use other logo, the phil. coat of arms perhaps and the PFF logo stays the same.
The current logo is fine with me, because who knows just how bad we can screw it up even further
I seriously doubt that revising our logo to make it look more modern will be too difficult to accomplish considering the plethora of creative talent in our country. Just look at all the varying Azkal logos that popped up after the "Azkals" became the "official" mascot.
I think we had a brief debate about this because some people say "football" whilst others say "soccer." We're probably one of a handful of countries that use both terms. I don't know why because there's not another "football" sport that exists in the Philippines unlike in the USA, Canada and Australia.

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.

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.
