U23 football squad polish skills in Lipa


THE national men’s under-23 team has made the Aboitiz Pitch in Lipa City as its training camp in preparation for the Asian Football Confederation Under-23 Cup 2022 Qualifiers in Singapore.

The Singapore tournament will start on Monday.

The Philippine Football Federation and other football clubs have included the Aboitiz Pitch as one of their preferred training and competition venues.

The pitch is located inside the LIMA Estate, a 794-hectare industrial-anchored township located in Lipa City and Malvar in Batangas. It is considered as the largest and best-selling privately-owned industrial estate in the Philippines and has its own central business district and world-class sports facilities.

The Aboitiz Pitch is one of the largest artificial turfs in Luzon and could be utilized for multiple sports.

To ensure safety, players, coaching staff and team officials undergo RT-PCR testing before entry to the facility and routine testing during training. They are all required to wear face masks and shields at all times, except during training or competition.

The Aboitiz Pitch hosted a number of games of the Philippine Football League and the Youth Football League before the pandemic and the training of the Kaya Football Club Iloilo during the pandemic.

“We are honored to be hosting the Philippine Football Federation and its member clubs in LIMA and at the Aboitiz Pitch,” Rob del Rosario, Luzon Operations Head of Aboitiz InfraCapital’s Commercial Business Unit, said. “It ensures that our athletes can continue their training and development programs in a safe and conducive environment.”
