Global will have a new home for its AFC Cup campaign.

Club president Dan Palami announced during Global's team launch that it will play at the new Philippine Sports Stadium in Bocaue, Bulacan during its home games, beginning with its first assignment against Hong Kong's South China on February 25.

“We’re privileged to have been given the right to use it by those who manage the stadium,” Palami said.

Global and South China will get the distinction of becoming the first football teams to play at the new pitch, located near the Philippine Arena inside the Iglesia ni Cristo's Ciudad de Victoria.

Yadanarbon and Pahang, the other two clubs in Global's AFC Cup group, will also get the chance to experience playing at the said pitch as the four teams will play a double round-robin, home-and-away, group stage format.
