Futbulakenyos coach Emmanuel Robles said that they expect to face around 300 teams from different places and regions in the Philippines.
“Malaking competition 'yon kasi national competition 'yon eh. Alaska nga ang major sponsor nun kaya maraming sumasali,” said coach Robles.
The said game will only last for two days. It will be a seven-a-side football with different aged groups crashing. The winner will receive trophy, medals, certificates and gifts coming from the major sponsor, Alaska.
Members of Futbulakenyos that are students of Bulacan State University (BSU) are also preparing for the State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association (SCUAA) meet. They will represent BSU, and compete with other State Universities and Colleges (SUC) in Ramon Magsaysay Technological University, Zambales on December.
Aside from Alaska Cup and SCUAA, Futbulakenyos also attempts to join other leagues outside Bulacan. For now, they are still asking for the permission of BSU if they can use the name of the university, but if the university will not allow them, then they will carry again the name “Futbulakenyos” and try to ask for financial support from the local government or groups.
