“Puma Seven’s Cup is a seven aside game which aims to gather different teams from all over the country”, stated (Joemar Moscaya), Marketing Manager of PUMA Philippines.
The organization successfully finished its 7 a-side tournament in which over 60 teams from all over Mindanao competed to win the cup. But for the Puma and the Provincial Government, this tournament was much more than just a showdown between local soccer teams.
With fewer players on the field, they are forced to bring themselves more in to achieving a satisfying outcome for the match. The 7 a-side match is a fast game that requires improved physical abilities from the players compared to the more team based match of the regular 11 a-side game of soccer.
One game of the 7-aside tournament consist of 20 minutes with 10 minutes each half. The cup also serves as an encouragement for the country’s youth to pick up the ball and get active and showcase their talents in the art of the game.
The PUMA Seven’s CUP was also held on Manila in Quezon City last October, and will be on San Carlos City Negros Occidental this coming January 27-29 2017.
“It’s going to be bigger when the national league arrives in April 2017” – Joemar Moscaya
PUMA Seven’s Cup is just a first step towards a partnership with Lanao del Norte, the Provincial Government wants to hold as well the National PUMA 7s cup in March of 2017 with this it aims to provide a long lasting mutual relationship between the PUMA company and the Government of Lanao del Norte.
The common factor among all participants in the PUMA Seven’s Cup coaches and players alike is the passion for soccer. More than sixty coaches, ten referees, hundreds of players, friends, and families are engaged in some way by the PUMA tournament. PIO-LDN
