MANILA -- In its quest in promoting football in the country, the PFF launched its online registration program today here at the Century Park Hotel.

With PFF Secretary-General Atty. Ed Gastanes in tow, MyPFF kicks off with Azkals gaffer Thomas Dooley and U22 standout and Ateneo striker Jarvey Gayoso the first pair to register in the online program which was launched in coordination with software developer RSportz and marketing arm MMC Sportz Asia.

Following the mandate of FIFA, the said program will be included in the PFF website starting on July 3 and will be mandatory to all football stakeholders, with the fans as its key exemption. According to Atty. Gastanes, MyPFF will be a requirement for all players, coaches, referees and football officials to be eligible in taking part of all PFF-sanctioned activities starting next year.

"This is a great initiative as it creates a feeling of belonging especially for the players and fans while at the same time the federation will be a better position to manage and administer the football community once all had registered," the American said about the program.

After a successful registration, registered players and officials will have their own IDs that bears their lifetime membership in PFF.
