PFL Tournament 2021 to be launched in July

According to a statement with the ASEAN Football Federation, the tournament of the Philippines Football League will start on 17 July 2021.
The PFL tourney was postponed during the previous outbreak of the COVID-19. However, football authorities have decided to hold the tournament back in July.
Ahead of the tourney, the Philippines Football Federation President Mariano Araneta said, “The (Copa Paulino Alcantara) will not push through this year because of the current situation. We decided that we will proceed with the league by 17 July when we have the vaccines rolled out already.” “We understand the situation the clubs are facing during these challenging times. With a scheduled kickoff date of 17 July, the clubs will be able to plan accordingly for another exciting PFL season.”
“The players are welcome to be vaccinated as it is protection for them. We’re giving them a choice as PFF will be spending on the vaccines. I’m confident that they will accept these vaccines.” “Last year, clubs were only able to play five matches in the bubble season. With the vaccine set to roll out this year, we look forward to giving the clubs more competitive matches to keep the players physically fit, which will benefit our clubs participating at the domestic level, international competitions, and our national team,” the PFL commissioner added. — GNLM
