Protest stops new CFA board from taking post

(This report by Cheska D. Geli came out in Sun.Star Cebu on June 3)
THE newly-elected officers of the Cebu Football Association (CFA) will still have to wait before they officially start their term of office.

An election protest was submitted to the Philippine Football Federation (PFF), forcing the national governing body for football to hold the recognition of the new set of officers.

PFF said in its communication letter to the CFA dated May 28 that they are forced to refer the matter to the membership committee headed by Atty. Anlu Carpio and legal committee head Atty. Edwin Gastanes.

PFF however, did not specify the basis of the protest other than it is “election-related” and also did not mention who filed the protest.

The letter became PFF’s reply after the CFA board sent them the list of the newly-elected board of directors.

“Tungod ani kay dili pa mi ma-recognize. Gusto na unta mi mag turnover to check the financial aspect of the organization,” Glen Quisido.

“For now, we have to wait for the findings of the PFF committee regarding the election,” said Quisido.

But while waiting for the decision, they will continue to plan for their upcoming projects.

As of now, the new board is working on their plan to host a UFL match and an exhibition game against European teams.

"Pero gusto jud namo na kaning activities kay naay blessings sa PFF," said Quisido.
