Hi, My name is Sam Murphy i am English and play for a team in England called Hendon FC, my Girlfriend is Filipino and recently found out that there is a professional league in the Philippines, so what i want to know is if anyone can answer a few questions for me.
1. How much do the best players usually earn in the UFL? and how much do players make on average? 2. Are the teams run professionally? (like transport to and from games, do the club provide this of do you have to make your own way to games ect) 3. Are the teams full time? like do they train 4 or 5+ times a week or just 1 or 2 times a week? 4. Do most foreign players make enough to live on out there or do they usually find a job out there to help support them? 5. When does the season start and finish? 6. Do teams offer try-outs?
These are just a few questions, i would be very grateful if anyone can answer these for me as this is a big decision in my life right now.
Hi Sam. If I were you I would contact the teams in the UFL about this questions. If you have been reading our forum you would notice that every season, many UFL teams hire professional players from abroad including those from Spain, England, Germany, the US and other parts of the world most of the time on a full time basis. Most of these players are from the lower divisions in their respective country's professional league setup (2nd tier and below) and are paid different rates based on their experience and qualifications.
Because the UFL is a relatively young league, its standards in terms of being run professionally as well as budget for players, differs from team to team, but the clubs that normally finish near the top, are the ones that have the most financial wherewithal and professional setup that mimic those found in Europe. Many players supplement their football income by taking up other jobs(coaching, modeling, etc.) but most of the players from abroad are given higher salaries relative to their local counterparts, which attracts some of them stay for more than just a season.
They do offer tryouts, but again you would have to ask each club, when and how often they do those.
BoyBacolod: what lol 😋

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: Negros Occidental footy fans, expect more football this 2019, now that a San Carlos native is governor.

@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.

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.

Passerby: That's awkwardly worded.
