The preliminary stage of the Yellow Cab Football Cup, a tournament for teams of boys and girls below 18 will open October 15 at the Blue Pitch, Circuit Makati. The final rounds begin October 22 at the same venue.
The tournament, aiming to reach the youth through sports, is a project of Yellow Cab Pizza Co. and local football team Kaya FC. It will allow six winning teams to donate P20,000 each to their chosen charities.
“We’ve been partnered with Kaya FC for a while now because we share the same values of giving back, integrity, respect, and perseverance. We want to impart these to the youth through sports, where they can put into practice these things. We’re very excited to have the children finally playing all for a good cause,” said Max’s Group Inc. Chief Marketing Officer and Board of Director member Jim Fuentebella.
Teams from La Salle Greenhills, British School Manila, Southridge, Gawad Kalinga, Journey for Hope, as well as local football clubs JP Voltes FC and Forza FC will play in the charity event.
