PFL makes changes
to bubble schedule

The Philippines Football League (PFL) made some changes to its schedule for the upcoming 2020 season.

The biggest of the tweaks is the way the champion will be crowned.

Commissioner Coco Torre revealed on Wednesday night that the league just scrapped off the Final 4 format, formally called "Finals Series", as a result of a meeting among team owners on Sunday.

More funds sought for Olympic gold

Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) President Rep. Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino has sought an additional P510 million budget for elite sports for 2021 as the country got a clear shot at possibly winning its first or even more Olympic gold medal at the rescheduled Tokyo Games.

“Tokyo could be that host city where the country could win not one, not two, but probably more Olympic gold medals in 2021. And along this line, the athletes need all the support in their bid to accomplish what has never been achieved before,” Tolentino said after his interpellation on the Philippine Sports Commission’s (PSC) proposed budget for 2021.

The PSC proposed for a traditional Department of Budget Management-endorsed P207 million 2021 budget that is intended for the agency’s operations and salaries and wages of personnel.
