A parcel of land within the San Lazaro Leisure Park in Carmona, Cavite could someday serve as the new home of the Philippine Football Federation’s headquarters and national training center.
PFF president Mariano “Nonong” Araneta said they have plans of purchase a 3,000 sqm parcel of land within the area and build a complex with dormitories, classrooms for coaching and referee courses, and a gym.
“The funds are ready, initially we will be getting US$1.5 Million from FIFA,” said Araneta in a statement. He said they have plans of selling their present building in Pasig to help fund the move.
Another option is available, and that is to buy a different 2,000 sqm plot of land beside the artificial pitch that is separate from the 3,000 sqm parcel of land.
From there, a grandstand could be constructed, and the pitch can be turned into a stadium.
The headquarters could then be situated under the seating while the other site houses the dorms, classrooms, and gym.
There are more fields that may be acquired for the training center.
Araneta says that two artificial turf mini-pitches measuring 40 by 20 meters will be made right beside the main pitch.
