UAAP Football is back and better than ever!
It’s time to get those cleats up as the UAAP’s Football Tournament kicks off its LIVE broadcast on ABS-CBN S+A starting this Thursday (February 21) afternoon from the Moro Lorenzo field in Ateneo.
The match between the University of the East (UE) Red Warriors against the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) Blue Booters opens the curtains on the pitch this Thursday (February 21) at 1 pm. It will be followed by the ongoing Finals between the NU-Nazareth School Bullpups versus the defending FEU Baby Tamaraws at 3 pm.
The UAAP football season’s opening matches last February 17 was streamed live on iWant and sports.abs-cbn.com, with the afternoon matches airing on LIGA. Starting this Thursday, however, afternoon matches at the men’s seniors level will be available on all platforms of ABS-CBN Sports, from S+A on free TV, S+A HD, LIGA, and LIGA HD on cable TV, and iWant and sports.abs-cbn.com online, while the morning game between Adamson University (AdU) and University of Santo Tomas will be streamed online.
Bannering for the Blue Booters in their campaign to regain the title is Philippine football wunderkind Jarvey Gayoso, who has been blasting nets and tallying goals left and right since his rookie year. As a junior, Gayoso will be tasked to lead a loaded veteran squad that features four seniors. On the other side of the fence, Mar Diano hopes to follow up a successful rookie campaign to lead the Red Warriors to a Final Four finish after missing the bus last season.
Over on the Juniors side, the Bullpups have led throughout the elimination and look to put an end to the FEU Baby Tams’ reign in the division. The Baby Tams have been champions for the past eight years, unmatched by any team in the entire field.
Aside from that, expect world-class football coverage from ABS-CBN Sports as they bring in the likes of longtime football analyst Bob Guerrero, Mikee Carrion, and Armand Del Rosario on board as panelists along with former DLSU Lady Green Booter Tasha Alquiros.
Don’t miss the scintillating action on the pitch as ABS-CBN Sports brings to fans LIVE games of the UAAP Football Tournament from the Moro Lorenzo and FEU-Diliman fields on S+A, S+A HD, LIGA, LIGA HD, with streaming available at sports.abs-cbn.com and iWant starting Thursday (February 21) with UE-ADMU tiff at 1 pm followed by the Finals match in the Juniors division between the NU Bullpups and FEU Baby Tamaraws at 3 pm.
