DEFENDING Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) football champion University of San Carlos will start its title defense when it hosts the University of the Visayas in the opening game at 1 p.m. this Saturday.

After the opening match, last year’s runnerup and four-time champion University of San Jose-Recoletos will face the University of Cebu at 3 p.m.

Cesafi football tournament manager Jonathan Maximo yesterday told Sun.Star Cebu that the next round of games will be on Nov. 18 after the formal opening of the Cesafi other events at the New Cebu Coliseum.

On Sunday, 2005 champion University of the Visayas will face UC at 1 p.m., while USC will take on the University of Southern Philippines.

Maximo said that this year’s participants must pass the eligibility rules of the Cesafi to qualify for the event.

Each player must have at least 14 academic units and must also pass 60 percent of all their subjects.

Maximo also said that the screening was done by the Cesafi screening committee composed of athletic directors of all member schools.

He added that the screening committee will also provide the final lists of players this Friday after some players said that they did not receive yet their final grades.

“We will give them time, an extension on Friday to prove they’re qualified based on the Cesafi eligibility rules”, he said.

After this weekend’s games, the Cesafi football will resume on Nov. 24, Dec. 1, 2, 8 and 9. (NSM)
