Sinulog Cup adjusts schedule to avoid conflict

ORGANIZERS of the 1st Sinulog Football Festival have adjusted their schedules to avoid a conflict with the Aboitiz Football Cup.

The Sinulog Cup will be played at the University of San Carlos, while the other event will be at the Aboitiz Sports Field in Mandaue.

Instead of asking the Aboitiz Football Cup to postpone its games this weekend, Francis Ramirez, is tweaking the schedule of the Sinulog Cup.

“It will be hard to inform the other teams (in the Aboitiz Football Cup). That’s why I went to my plan B. For the teams that will play in the morning in the Aboitiz Cup, I will schedule their Sinulog Cup games in the afternoon. For those who have afternoon games in the Aboitiz Cup, will have morning games in the Sinulog Cup,” said Ramirez in an interview by Sun.Star Cebu.

Ramirez said he decided to give way to the Aboitiz tournament because its schedule was mapped out before the announcement of the Sinulog Football Festival. (more)

    This is the problem with the Filipino psyche, everyone want to have their own parade, event, this time football tournament.

    They should just have pooled their resources with Aboitiz football tournament and name it the “1st Sinulog-Aboitiz Tournament” and just carry-over the champions of the past Aboitiz tournaments.

    This will be to the disadvantage of the public. They have to choose which one to watch and follow because the public has to watch other events, too, like parades, music festivals and beauty contests. The public will not waste their time watching 2 tournaments.
