/ 09:50 PM April 02, 2012

PHILIPPINE Olympic Committee chair Monico O. Puentevella was formally inducted to the International Football Federation (Fifa) marketing and television committee at the Fifa headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland, recently.

Puentevella’s appointment in the powerful Fifa committee is his second in the sport after serving in the media committee of the Asian Football Confederation.

Puentevella, who was inducted in the presence of Fifa president Sepp Blatter, will work under chair Marios Lefkaritis of Cyprus and Ricardo Teixeira of Brazil.


“It is an honor to represent our country in a prestigious global organization like Fifa considering that Filipinos today are becoming one of the most passionate enthusiasts of football in our part of the world,” Puentevella said.

The conference attended by Puentevella in Zurich discussed, among others, key issues involving social media and football, as well as media rights in continents like Oceania, Africa, North and Central America, South America, Europe and Asia.  Cedelf P. Tupas
