This, according to Philippine Football Federation (PFF) general-secretary Atty. Edwin Gastanes in a phone interview on Tuesday.

With the hosting for the Suzuki Cup over, the PFF is turning its attention to the launch of the PFL that will supersede the United Football League (UFL) as the top tier of Philippine club football competition.

“The UFL was instrumental is keeping football popular and viable for us. People must recognize their efforts. However, the league was Manila-based, while the PFL will be national in scope with clubs relocating to key cities. We are following the mandate of FIFA for this,” explained Gastanes.

“Clubs will be regionally and community based. The idea is also to develop local support including a fan base.”
 
The five clubs are Stallion, Kaya, Loyola, Global, and Ceres.
