Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF President

Promising improvements and more support from private companies for the sport, Mariano “Nonong” Araneta was re-elected as president of the Philippine Football Federation last Friday during the 16th PFF Congress at Century Park Hotel in Manila.  A member of the FIFA Executive Council, Araneta, who ran unopposed in 2011 and 2015, prevailed over Negros Occidental Football Association president Ricky Yanson, 23-12. Araneta immediately extended his hand in reconciliation to Yanson after a challenging campaign where the PFF president lamented the attack on his character and integrity. “Rest assured, we will do better and we will move on as one,” said Araneta. “I enjoin everyone to unite for the good of Philippine football. I am extending my hand to my opponent so we can bring football further.” Araneta got solid support from the Mindanao bloc, led by his running mate M’lang Cotabato mayor Joselito Piñol, who was also re-elected as Vice President. Also boosting Araneta’s candidacy was the entry of three Philippines Football League clubs Ceres Negros FC, Kaya Iloilo and Stallion Laguna, which were able to secure voting rights after their membership to the PFF was approved earlier during the PFF Congress.  “The toughest part of the campaign was the vicious attack on my character,” said Araneta. “But most of the members here believe in my ability. They trusted me and for another four-year term." Araneta said his four-year plan for the federation will include more infrastructure with the impending completion of the National Training Centre in Carmona, Cavite.  Qatar Airways, upon Araneta’s request, had agreed to a three-year deal as title sponsor of the PFL starting next year.  Yanson had criticized the PFF for a lack of age-group tournaments, something Araneta addressed by announcing more support for competitions from private sponsors. Among those who have already promised their backing to youth football are Vallacar Transit Inc. and Giligans.  Araneta sees the Qatar Airways deal as a game-changer that will once again revitalize the country’s professional league.  “All the money we usually spend for the league will now be plowed back to the development of the youth,” said Araneta. .....»»

SEA Games: Close loss to Alab the perfect lesson for Gilas

Gilas Pilipinas hoped for a lesson as they engaged Alab Pilipinas for a pair of practice games in back-to-back weeks. The national team got just that as Alab handed them a 93-89 loss Monday at the Meralco Gym. It’s the first loss for Gilas on its buildup for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. “It’s a step back, but I think it’s a good step back that we have,” head coach Tim Cone said. “We understand how hard this is gonna be. This is not gonna be easy. It’s a good message for everybody,” he added. Despite losing to Alab, Gilas still has some good stuff to take from the game. Add that to the fact that they now know winning games will not be as easy, it gives the national team actual stuff to work on and not just try to overwhelm opponents with sheer talent. “The good news is we battled. Guys were pulling for each other all the time. We were unselfish. We tried hard on defense, although we were disorganized. Those were all the positives that we wanna move forward on,” coach Tim said. “Hopefully this is one step back, two steps forward. It was a good step for us. I just hate losing, that’s all,” Cone added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

ONE Championship: Rene Catalan steps back from coaching as he prepares for title shot

Catalan Fighting System had to make some sacrifices in training camp as two of its top mixed martial artists will compete on the same night at ONE: MASTERS OF FATE. The team's head coach, Rene "The Challenger" Catalan, is scheduled to compete in his most important bout to date when he challenges ONE Strawweight World Champion Joshua "The Passion" Pacio. His younger brother, Robin "The Ilonggo" Catalan is also set to compete on the undercard against Olympic wrestler Gustavo "El Gladiador" Balart this Friday, 8 November at the Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines. Despite their tight schedule, the elder of the Catalan brothers has been managing his roles well.  “For our preparation, I created a training program then passed it on to our wrestling coach so he can look it over. The same thing for our striking program,” Catalan said.  “Not to be overconfident with Robin, but my coaches take care of his routine so I can focus on my own preparation. It’s basically the same program that I am on.”  Normally, “The Challenger” would want to be in the corner of his younger brother in every match.  But this is not just any night for the 40-year-old. He is one win away from reaching his ultimate goal in mixed martial arts.  “I already delegated the cornering duties in Robin’s fight to our coaches,” Catalan said.  “As much as I want to, I have to focus on the World Title shot. I have full confidence in my coaches and in Robin that they can pull it off.” The younger of the Catalan brothers has no problems with his big brother’s decision, especially with the magnitude of Rene’s match With everything in place now, the pride of Sta. Barbara, Iloilo only requests one thing from his team.  “I’m excited. This is it. The only thing I can ask now from my team is to pray for me in this match.”      Catch ONE: MASTERS OF FATE live on Friday, November 8th LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23 on LIVESTREAM via the ABS-CBN Sports Facebook Page and on iWant starting at 8:30 PM.
