Tuesday, July 17, 2012
BONIFACIO Global City (BGC) goes an extra mile in supporting the sport of Football in the country as Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation (FBDC), owner and developer of BGC, signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) to support RP's women's football team, Malditas, in its bid for international titles this year.
Turf BGC, the country's first publicly accessible football field located in BGC, will be the new home of the Malditas. The national team will have free access to the field for their practice and training sessions. It will also receive cash sponsorship from FBDC and Alveo Land.
The Malditas is currently preparing for the 2012 ASEAN Football Federation Women's Championships in Vietnam and the 2012 LA Viking's Cup in Los Angeles, California.
"We're proud to support Malditas and PFF. We’ve been working with PFF since the development of Turf BGC. This MOA will cement our partnership in promoting Philippine football," said FBDC's head of commercial operations Manny Blas II.
PFF helped in the technical and communal aspects of constructing Turf BGC.
PFF president Mariano Araneta thanked BGC for supporting Malditas and promoting football.
"We'd like to thank BGC for putting up Turf BGC, a world-class artificial football field. It provides national teams with a venue where they can hone their skills. Hopefully, other institutions will follow BGC’s lead," Araneta said. (PR)
