CAGAYAN de Oro City — Zamboanga Sulu Tawi-tawi Regional FA (ZAMBASULTAFA) is hosting the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) U19 Boys National Championship 2nd Division Vis-Min National Group Stage 2022 on Aug. 22-27.
The PFF Competitions committee has confirmed that the ZAMBASULTAFA has been granted the privilege to host the weeklong competition.
Three match days are set on Aug. 23, 25, and 27 among teams which advanced from in their own group stages in Visayas and Mindanao.
Competing teams are host ZAMBASULTAFA, Camiguin-Misamis Oriental Regional FA, Central Visayas RFA, and Golden Davao RFA.
The tournament will be held at the newly refurbished Juan Enrquez Memorial Sports Complex (JEMSC).
The Zamboanga City LGU has just recently laid out an artificial turf to the football pitch to replace the natural grass.
There used to be a baseball diamond in the middle of the track oval in the old JEMSC and a separate football pitch at the left side facing the main grandstand.
However, the baseball diamond was replaced by a football pitch and a building was built on the old football pitch.
No less than Zamboanga City Mayor John Dalipa has inspected the pitch with ZAMBASULTA president Dr. Justin Paber and General Secretary Atty. Wendel Sotto.
Mayor John Dalipa is leading the organizational set up of the hosting. The Philippine Football Federation (PFF) led by U19 tournament manager Warren Concepcion are traveling to Zamboanga this week to finalize the preparation.
