The Philippine Football Federation yesterday assured a smooth hosting of the AFF Suzuki Cup despite key issues that could affect Southeast Asia’s biggest football competition that kicks off on Saturday at the Philippine Sports Stadium in Bocaue, Bulacan.
Contingency plans have been made by the PFF, although the federation’s general secretary Ed Gastanes admitted that traffic and the lack of transportation may affect during the country’s first-ever hosting of the Suzuki Cup.
“So far our venues are okay, so are the hotels, it’s just the traffic and the mass transport system that is going to be a problem,” Gastanes said during yesterday’s PSA Forum at the Shakey’s Malate branch.
The Azkals are placed in Group A or otherwise known as the “Group of Death,” as they are joined by defending champion Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia.
