MANILA (23 Jan 2016) – The Philippines United Football League 2016 will kick-off on 6 February, with only 12 teams taking part.
Unlike last year where the tournament was played with a league format with two divisions taking part, this time round, the meet will use a Cup competition instead as the starting point, with the top four from each group advancing to the quarter-finals and so forth.
Kaya FC are the defending league champions after beating Ceres-La Salle in the final.
The UFL has removed the need for two divisions in 2016 where they have merged the second division teams with the top-flight for a stronger 12-team cast.
The final will be played at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.
