The Philippine Football Federation in partnership with Smart Communications yesterday officially launched the PFF – Smart National Club Championship in Davao City.
In announcing the event, Davao Football Association secretary general Erwin Protacio said PFF Tournament Director Cyril Dofitas will be personally inspecting the venues and hold meetings with Provincial Football Association officials.
The top teams in the cluster elimination will compete in the Mindanao Finals on 23 – 26 November 2012 to be played at the TIonko Field in Davao City.
The top two teams in Mindanao will then join the top two (2) teams of Luzon and Visayas and the top ten (10) United Football League teams for the round of 16 to start on 12 January 2012 at a venue to be determined later.
Davao FA is the defending champion in Mindanao and was represented by Columbia FC. Columbia is tied with Pachanga FC and Stallions FC in the top spot in the Quarter Finals, with identical 2 win – 1 loss record, but was left out due to a lower goal difference computation.
Hooligans FC will represent Davao FA this year.
