    The Copa Paulino Alcantara was reduced to five teams with the United City pullout

    UNITED City FC bared on Monday that it has been dragged into a legal dispute which occurred before the transfer of team ownership from Ceres Negros FC in 2020.

    UCFC said it has affected the club since they took over operations. The legal matter has reached Fifa and because of the situation, it has affected the club's license application for Asian Football Confederation (AFC) competitions even though the controversy erupted during the Ceres Negros FC ownership.

    The club added joining this year’s Copa will also affect the nominations of the other clubs for the 2022 AFC Cup due to the dispute.

    “When United City FC took over the licenses from Ceres-Negros to rescue the club in July 2020, the parties signed an agreement outlining particular obligations to be fulfilled by Ceres-Negros. However, some have unfortunately not been met by the former club, as of this writing,” said the club on its Facebook page.

    “As the successor of Ceres Negros, United City FC is now being dragged into legal disputes brought forward against Ceres-Negros, for which United City FC is neither responsible nor have caused the circumstances, as all this arose before the take-over of the club, which is undisputed.”
