The 4th season of the PFL is slated to finally open after all players and staff in the bubble test negative for COVID-19

The Philippines Football League (PFL) is scheduled to finally open its delayed 4th season on Wednesday, October 28, following negative COVID-19 tests.

“All players, coaches, and staff underwent antigen tests last Sunday, October 25, inside the league’s ‘bubble’ in Seda Nuvali in Santa Rosa, Laguna. All had negative results,” read the statement from the Philippine Football Federation.

The PFL delayed the season opener on Sunday due to the 9 individuals – players and coaches included – from two clubs who yielded positive results from their RT-PCR/swab tests conducted last Wednesday, October 21.

The individuals have been isolated and their close contacts have undergone the antigen tests.

“Antigen tests will be conducted regularly every other day for the two clubs. Pre-match day antigen test will also be conducted for the rest,” added the statement.

The inclement weather brought about by tropical depression Quinta also affected the pitch in the PFF National Training Center in Carmona, Cavite.

The PFL will announce a new schedule of fixtures later Monday, October 26. –
