“Our football teams in the tournament were also the first to make use of the newly inaugurated FIFA-spec artificial turf football field. It is the first of its kind south of Manila and we would like to thank DLSZ President Bro. Dennis Magbanua FSC, Green Archers United FC and Globe Telecom for making this possible. Even now, we expect next year’s sport festival to be well attended so we invite all teams to book early and reserve a slot,” Atayde said.
