AIA official glad about 7's FL growth ahead of Kampeon Cup return

By Dugout Philippines

BACOLOD–The 2nd AIA Vitality Kampeon Cup kicks off at the La Provincia Polo Field here from Oct. 14 all the way to Oct. 16.

The best seven-a-side selection squads from Taguig, Pampanga, Cebu, Iloilo, and Bacolod, with the last team coming over from either Davao or Muntinlupa, will be competing for the right to be called national champion. 

“The AIA Vitality Kampeon Cup is a tournament that seeks to bring the best football players all over the country in a festival-type atmosphere where there are games for kids, a tournament for the youth, women’s, and men’s with the Kampeon Cup in between,” said Kampeon Cup founder and former national player Anton del Rosario.

The inaugural AIA Vitality Kampeon Cup was held in 2019 where teams from Cebu, Bacolod, and Davao flew over to Manila for the tournament. Cebu prevailed and are defending champions.

“We are happy the league has continued to make strides in the local football scene by expanding its scope from Pampanga, Manila, and Palawan all the way to Cebu, Iloilo, and Bacolod, giving even more Filipinos a chance to showcase their skills on a nationwide scale," says Kats Cajucom, AIA Philippines’ Head of Health and Wellness. “We are excited for Kampeon’s kick-off in Bacolod, and look forward to helping Filipinos—young and old alike—live healthier, longer, better lives through our continued support of football."

The goal for del Rosario and his co-organizers is for the Kampeon Cup to get bigger and bigger as the years go on. 

“The goal for the Kampeon Cup is to be an international tournament where teams from Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and others come over to participate,” summed up del Rosario. “Now that will not only help the sport on a national level but also foster better relations with our neighbors.”
