THE Philippine Football Federation (PFF) has approved a provisional license to Maharlika FC and issued a 90-day suspension on the license of Global FC.
The decisions were made by the PFF club licensing first instance body (FIB) on Tuesday.
The approval by the FIB means that Maharlika FC, owned by former Azkals player Anton del Rosario, will be the fifth licensed club that will see action in the fourth season of the Philippines Football League joining Kaya FC-Iloilo, Mendiola FC 1991, Stallion Laguna FC, United City FC, and the Azkals Developmental Team.
The Maharlika FC has undergone swab tests at the PFF House of Football in Pasig in order for its players to ba able to begin training at the National Training Center in Carmona, Cavite.
Meanwhile, the license of Global FC has been suspended following its failure to settle overdue payables to players, officials, and staff. In its statement, the FIB has ordered Global FC “to demonstrate within 90 days that its overdue payables to employees has been fully settled, deferred by mutual agreement by the creditor, or are subject to a not obviously unfounded dispute submitted to a competent authority.”
The PFF added it will revoke Global’s license if such order is not fulfilled.
