·1 min read

FOLLOWING a setback on kickoff day because of the bad weather and positive test results for Covid-19, the Philippines Football League (PFL) now has a new date to start the 2020 season.

The PFL’s new opening date is on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) National Training Center in Carmona, Cavite.

“We are happy to announce the kickoff of the 2020 PFL season on Wednesday,” said Philippine Football Federation president Mariano Araneta in an announcement last Sunday night, Oct. 25.

“This is a big moment for everyone in the football community. We appreciate the collective effort from the PFF, the clubs, and most important, the Games and Amusements Board and the city government of Sta. Rosa, Laguna.”

The league was supposed to start last Sunday but the PFL opted to postpone the opening because of the bad weather caused by Tropical Depression Quinta and after five players and a coach tested positive for Covid-19.

All the rest of the players, coaches and staff had antigen testing last Sunday at the Seda Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna and everyone tested negative. (EKA)
