Philippine football 'Peace Cup' tickets now available
MANILA, Philippines -- Tickets to the newly-named Philippine Football Peace Cup to be held at the Rizal Memorial Stadium on September 25-29 are now available.
The Philippine Football Federation (PFF) has named the 4-nation football tournament the Philippine Football Peace Cup (also known as the Paulino Alcantara Cup) in support of the National Peace Consciousness Month (Peace Month).
Previously called the Long Teng Cup, the international event is co-presented by the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).
“We join the nation in celebrating Peace Month this September by naming the tournament the Philippine Football Peace Cup,” said PFF President Mariano “Nonong” Araneta.
He added that the games will also celebrate the legacy of Philippine football player Paulino Alcantara who served as an inspiration to many footballers.
Ticket prices per game are pegged at P500 (VIP center grandstand); P300 (regular grandstand); P50 (bleachers). Fans can also purchase a Golden Ticket at P1,000, which entitles a holder to a VIP grandstand seat for all the 6 games over the three game dates. A student discount of 50% - subject to presentation of School ID when the ticket is purchased by the student at a Ticketworld outlet – will also be available and is valid only for non-VIP seats.
The international annual tournament is the third edition of the series organized in 2010 by the Chinese Taipei Football Association. Four nations, namely the Philippines, Chinese Taipei, Macau, and Guam, will
compete in this year’s single-round robin tournament.
The Philippine Azkals also announced that the games they play this September are for peace. Aside from the Peace Cup, the Azkals have friendly matches on September 5, 7, and 10 in Cambodia, Singapore, and Laos,
