This story was published in Sun.Star Cebu on July 21, 2011

THE Treadtel Cup will add the Players 6 division when it kicks off the new season this weekend at the Aboitiz Spors Field.

The latest addition to the event jointly organized by the Cebu Football Association and Treadtel Tires will be in line with the grassroots program activities initiated by the Philippine Football Association.

Aside from the P6, the other divisions are Players 8 and 10, Girls 14 and 17, Boys 12, 15 and 17.

The tournament, which attracted 56 teams, will be missing Boys 17 defending champion Abellana National High School (ANS) Pomeroy and the Cebu International School, which is on its summer break.

But with their absence comes the participation of the under-13 national team known as the Little Azkals, under Oliver Colina. The team is expected to arrive on Friday and will have their first game the next day.

Other formidable teams in the city that will also be seeing action are Don Bosco Technological Center, Paref Springdale, Ateneo de Cebu and University of San Carlos girls team who will be defending their Girls 17 title.

Aside from the Treadtel Cup, local teams are also gearing up for the Aboitiz Cup, which is scheduled to open in the first week of September.

This year’s Aboitiz Cup will add the Boys 19 and Boys 23 categories and the winning teams will represent Cebu in the Under-23 Suzuki Cup Visayas Leg and Under-19 regional finals next year.
