This is the third football tournament organized by SunStar Cagayan de Oro. Last year, SunStar also successfully organized the 9-Aside Invitational tournament during the CdO Fiesta, and the Open Seven Festival in October.
The tournament is sanctioned by the local Football Association and the Philippine Football Federation.
This is the second football festival scheduled at the Westridge this school year. Two weeks ago the Magis FC organized the Barangay Carmen Fiesta Football Festival with more than 100 teams joining.
After the CdO Fiesta Football Festival, it will be a busy calendar for the local football community as the Little Milo Olympics is set in September and then the Department of Education District and Division meets to follow.
