CONTRIBUTED PHOTOBACOLOD CITY—The uncertainty surrounding the future of club football in the Philippines has not stopped reigning Philippines Football League champion Ceres Negros from staying true to its mission of raising the country’s football stock internationally.With club football in the country at the crossroads following the pullout of several clubs over the past year and the Philippine Premier League yet to be launched, the Busmen are focusing on bigger goals next year.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES “We love representing Negros, we love playing at Panaad,” says Schrock. “We have an owner who really looks after us and who consider a great friend off the pitch.”But results on the pitch are just half the story for Ceres. With the AFC Champions League match against Yangon United set to be played at Panaad Stadium on Feb. 5, the club is bracing for another hosting job.Teams in tournaments of this magnitude subject themselves to strict AFC International Standards with sanctions and fines meted if those are not met.“It was quite an experience for us because we really just had to learn along the way,” says club administrator Nicolas Golez, who spearheads the local organizing committee for local matches.“We try our best to make sure that the pitch is in the best condition and improving the lighting at Panaad. It was worth all the hard work when we saw the big crowds for the matches.”Giving back to fansThrough it all, though, the club has allowed fans free admission to matches, despite all the hard work and the money that is being spent in every international tournament.It is Yanson’s way of giving back to the fans for the support and his effort to nurture the Negrense fans love and passion for the Beautiful Game.“I just want the city and the province to be recognized internationally for football,” he says.“Of course it’s all worth it. To tell you the truth, we are humbled by our results because it’s not easy. We are committed to be the best club that we can be.” BREAKING: Corrections officer shot dead in front of Bilibid LOOK: Joyce Pring goes public with engagement to Juancho Triviño Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Road to redemptionIt’s the same feeling a couple of years ago when they missed out on the United Football League title.
