ABOUT 200 clubs and teams from around Cebu will converge at the Dynamic Herb Football Stadium for the 1st ONDO Football Cup from June 9 to 11, 2023.

“We are very excited because this is our first Ondo Football Cup and it’s sponsored by our own company, ONDO Homes, ONDOrmitory and Outsourcing Needs and Design Options.

We are very excited,” said event organizer Jerome Villordon.

The seven-a-side football fiesta has a total of 13 categories -- Players 7, Players 9, Players 11, Boys 13, Girls 15, Boys 15, Boys 17, Girls 17, Boys 19, Mix Open, Ladies’ Open, Men’s Open and 40 Above.

The tournament was supposed to be on June 2 to 4 at the Cebu City Sports Center (CCSC).

But because of the closure of the CCSC, organizers had to adjust, pushed back the date and transferred it to a different venue: the Dynamic Herb Football Stadium.

Some elite clubs like Don Bosco Technical College, Don Bosco Boys Home, Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu and Cebu United Football Club are playing in the tournament.

Out-of-town teams like Carcar City, Balamban and Argao are also competing in the tournament. (EKA)
