Globe Telecom Supports the 7th Annual Adobo Cup and Football in the Philippines

Along side with the 2014 World FIFA Cup, locally, Adobo Magazine and Globe Telecom partnered to bring its 7th annual 5-a-side football tournament together with its 26 bunches of team — the 2014 Adobo Cup.

This year 2014 Adobo Cup will take place at the Gatorade-Chelsea FC Blue Pitch at Circuit Makati on June 28, 2014, Saturday.

Globe Telecom supports this year’s tourney as part of the company’s CSR program “Football Para Sa Bayan,” a grassroots campaign which advocates football as a tool to transform the lives of underprivileged children through by encouraging athletic excellence and providing educational opportunities.

Since its launch in 2013, the program has catered to more than 6,000 children around the country. By including the Adobo Cup in its efforts, Globe hopes to create strong awareness of the program’s cause, particularly among advertising specialists and those within the private sector.

Leading Globe’s Football Para Sa Bayan campaign is Chieffy Caligdong, Green Archers United left winger and Azkals midfielder.

We’d like to share with you a link to the video of Chieffy going home to Iloilo to engage kids in football through Football Para Sa Bayan, and we hope you can share this with your followers. Here is the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bed5vKNct7Y

In addition, Globe is also donating football training equipment to FutKal FC, the beneficiary of the Adobo Cup. FutKal is a non-profit organization that promotes football in the Philippines at the grassroots level. This year’s proceeds will go to FutKal’s Field of Hope initiative to help rebuild the lives of Typhoon Haiyan survivors.
