After a successful season, Philippine football stars give back by raising funds for Typhoon Ulysses victims

After weathering through monsoon rains and two typhoons, the ongoing Philippines Football League (PFL) season launched a fund drive to help victims of super typhoon Ulysses on Thursday, November 12.

“The PFL family will be auctioning off some of their most treasured possessions (kits, boots and goalkeeper gloves) to raise funds for the victims of Typhoon Ulysses,” wrote the league in its social media posts.

“Check out the PFL Facebook page regularly in the succeeding days for all the items that you can bid on. Bid winners will be informed via a private message.”

“You may also donate directly to the league’s fund-raising efforts. Just send us a private message.”

The 2020 PFL season’s individual awardees Stephan Schrock, Bienvenido Marañon and Anthony Pinthus, who are all from reigning champion United City FC, were among the first few players to donate their jerseys.

Former Azkals star and Maharlika FC playing owner Anton del Rosario’s jersey is also up for grabs starting Thursday.

Although United City FC copped the title and Kaya FC was awarded the runner-up position, there’s one more key duel lined up but the last match between Stallion Laguna and Mendiola FC was canceled on Thursday morning due to the typhoon.

The fixture was set to be a decider for the second 2021 AFC Cup slot and will be rescheduled to a further date.

The PFL was successfully staged in a bubble setup located at the PFF National Training Center in Carmona, Cavite. – Rappler.com
