UFL Looks Forward to Exciting Times Ahead

by Josue Jamlang

Itís only three weeks until the United Football League gets underway once again, with the LBC-UFL Cup kicking things off on October 16. The Football Alliance held a general meeting on Wednesday, where there was plenty of exciting news revealed to the 19 clubs that were present.

With the goal of giving football more exposure in the country, the FA was very pleased to reveal that there will be a weekly 30-minute football program airing on Balls TV Ė a sports channel on Sky Cable. The UFL will be featured regularly on the show, making it much easier for football enthusiasts to get a glimpse of just how intense and entertaining the competition is.

It was also announced that the First Division clubs will be receiving much higher allowances this season, signs that the league is successfully moving towards making football a legitimate professional sport in the country. The new revelation should be exciting news for all those eager for the beautiful game to develop in the nation, as more funding will certainly lead to better quality on the field. While it is the First Division that will be reaping the benefits of a bigger budget next season, the Second Division will surely become more competitive, as the incentive of bigger finances starts to play a role in their motivation for promotion.

The groups for the LBC-UFL Cup were also finalized on the night, throwing up some interesting matchups between both First and Second Division clubs. Group D looks to be the one thatís going to generate the most attention, as top tier clubs Union, Loyola and newly promoted Global are all bunched together.

These are exciting times for football in the country, as the United Football League aims to take the sport to new heights in the 2010/11 season.

LBC-UFL Cup Kicks Off to Packed UMak Crowd

by Josue Jamlang

The long wait for the restart of the United Football League officially ended on Saturday afternoon, as the opening of the second season took place at the impressive University of Makati stadium. Although the weather was threatening to ruin the event with heavy rains, the stands were packed with football enthusiasts, many of which were frothing for another half-a-year of Filipino football to look forward to.

Aside from the general anticipation for the long-awaited season, fans can anticipate more exciting clashes and intriguing match-ups, as the UFL have revealed six new clubs that will be competing this year (three of which will participate only in the Cup), with the aim of increasing the level of quality of play. Also, with Global Smartmatic and Union extremely busy during the off-season snapping up the best talents all over the country, this yearís Cup and League have all the signs of being even better than last year - and thatís no small feat, especially as the inaugural season was extremely successful.

Under the guidance of the Football Alliance, there has been little fear of a second year slump for the UFL, as the ambition to create a mass following for football remains as strong as ever in the group. With cable channel Balls agreeing to cover games and produce a weekly football show, the FA is showing its determination to reach out and expose as many Filipinos to the beauty of the most followed sport in the world.

Loyola ATR KimEng kicked off the LBC-UFL Cup in style on Saturday, coming from behind to defeat new boys Dolphins United 4-2. Two goals from JP Merida, and one each from Mark Madrona and youngster Gabi Borja were enough to ensure that efforts from Greg Calawood and Jarad Baron were nothing but consolations. Nomads and Green Archers Orient Freight were left frustrated on the day however, as the pitch was deemed unplayable after the first match, forcing officials to postpone their match to a later date.

Action continued with three matches on Sunday afternoon at Alabang Country Club (ACC), with the crowd getting their first taste of the new and improved Union FC. Lions and Sunken opened the day with a competitive goalless draw, while Union romped to a 6-0 victory over Mama Africa, and Laos FC held on to 2-1 win over fellow guest club Manila Sudanese Club.

The LBC-UFL Cup group stages continue next weekend, with three games in ACC and two games at Nomads Sports Club. Donít miss the action! This is the UFL! Itís OUR Game!

October 24 Round-up: Pasargard Make Dramatic UFL Entrance

by Josue Jamlang

The Alabang Country Club was abuzz once again on Sunday afternoon, as the United Football League held three exciting matches. It was a day of mixed fortunes for the new clubs, while the resident First Division teams Loyola ATR KimEng and Green Archers Orient Freight proved why they are in the countryís elite competition.

Pasargard provided the perfect platform for an entertaining afternoon, triumphing over the usually solid Laos FC in extremely dramatic fashion. It started off great for the Iranian side, who were leading 2-0 at half-time despite having to play most of the period with only ten men.

Although in an unfamiliar position, coach Jovanie Villagraciaís team talk at the interval proved to be effective, as Laos came back strong in the second half. Facing a two-goal deficit, the determined side picked up the pace and made it difficult for Pasargard to enjoy any sort of prolonged possession of the ball. Their pressure paid immediate dividends, as they clawed their way even, before going ahead 3-2 with less than a quarter of the game to go. While it seemed Laos had completed a dramatic turnaround, the Iranians had other ideas, as they pressed forward and capitalized on some shoddy defending to equalize. Minutes later, with the game just about to end, Pasargard breached the Laos defense one last time, announcing their arrival to the LBC-UFL Cup with an incredible comeback.

Loyola ATR KimEng then comfortably dispatched of Mama Africa in the second game at 3pm, strolling to a 4-2 win despite being far from their best. Green Archers Orient Freight, who played simultaneously, marked their debut under the reign of new coach Jose Ramon Garcia in promising fashion, defeating new club Inter Manila 1-0 in a tight and cagey affair.

The United Football League is in full swing on Halloween, with four games taking place at the Alabang Country Club, and three at the Nomads Sports Club. Global Smartmatic will be making their long-awaited debut, while the always competitive Armed Forces clubs Navy and Army Fritz and Macziol will also be kicking off their respective campaigns. Meanwhile, Loyola ATR KimEng will test their 100% record when they lock horns with the mighty Union. Plenty of action is in store for everyone on October 31, so donít miss out!

Schort, is MEndiola participating?

Nope, I don't think so. The "Lions FC" in the league probably refers to the Manila Lions FC, and not related to SBC. The SBC FC is reportedly known as, "San Beda Athletic Club".

Army Fritz & Macziol- IBM, Global Smartmatic, Navy and Stallions Make Impressive LBC-UFL Debuts

by Josue Jamlang

There was plenty of anticipation leading up to the LBC United Football Leagueís Halloween matches, as First Division heavyweights such as Army Fritz & Macziol- IBM, Global Smartmatic and Navy were all set to make their debuts in the 2010/11 season. On top of that, Loyola ATR KimEng and Union locked horns to settle who would top the tightly contested Group D.

The Armed Forces combined for a total 11-0 score line as both Army Fritz & Macziol and Navy kept clean sheets, romping to comfortable 8-0 and 3-0 victories over Sunken Garden United and Lions FC respectively. Global Smartmatic made their long-awaited start after a significantly busy transfer season, showcasing their immensely deep squad as they defeated Dolphins United 2-0, in a match where the result did little justice to the complete domination of the victors. Prolific former Kaya striker Izzeldin Elhabbib got off to where he left off last season, bagging both goals and effectively sending out a strong message to the rest of the league Ė Global will be the team to beat this season.

New team Stallions made an impressive debut as well, dispatching of struggling Inter Manila 5-0 in a largely one-sided match.

UFL action continues on November 4, as last yearís double winners Air Force Rider make their debut against Pasargard, 20:30, at the University of Makati. Things are just heating up in the LBC-UFL Cup, so donít miss out on all the excitement. Itís OUR Game!

Army Fritz & Macziol and Navy Roll On, While Union Stuns Global Smartmatic

A total of seven exciting matches were held last Sunday, with the LBC-UFL standings now showing a clearer picture of who willbe expected to participate in the quarter finals.

Armed Forces clubs Army Fritz & Macziol and Navy continued their 100% record in Group C, beating Lions and Sunken Garden respectively to secure qualification into the next round. The two clubs will meet on November 28 to decide who will take top spot in their group.

Union Internacional Manila grabbed their first win of the season, beating Japan K-Line in a match where goals were certainly not lacking. The game finished 8-5 in favor of Inter Manila, leaving Japan K-Line rooted to the bottom of Group B. At the opposite end of the group, are Stallions and Green Archers Orient Freight, who shared the spoils in their goalless match at Alabang Country Club.

The highlight of the night however, was undoubtedly the massive match between two of the LBC-UFL Cup favorites Global Smartmatic and Union. Although the latter has looked dominant in their last two matches, they were deemed underdogs by many going into the match, especially after Global had acquired some of the most talented players in the tournament during the off-season. Even with the likes of Philippine national captain Aly Borromeo, and last yearís top scorer Izzeldin Elhabbib, they could not dispatch of a Union side that never stopped fighting, even after going down to ten men. The match ended 2-1, sending a message to the rest of the league that Global Smartmaticís formidable team on paper, is very much capable of being beaten.

The action continues on Wednesday, when Stallions play Japan K-Line at Nomads Sports Club. This is the UFL. Itís Our Game! Visit www.footballalliance.ph for all results, news and standings.
