Just wanted to clarify, especially in regards to Scott McIntyre's comments in his article above on the different AFF professional club systems, on the A-League being the only country in the region having a playoff system. The Philippines Football League, just like its predecessor the UFL, will have a playoff system after the double round robin format regular season is over, just like Australia's A-League and the US MLS and their champion will be the winner of the playoff system and not the overall regular season leader. This is because the Philippines is used to following the American sport system structure. This applies to the other Philippine professional sports leagues in basketball and volleyball as well as in college sports. This will help in increasing the number of competitive matches most clubs plays per season in addition to regular matches. The difference between A-League/MLS and the PFL though is that the Philippines plans to implement a promotion/relegation system for their clubs, like they have in Europe as well as in other countries in Asia. They have a 3 year plan to implement this, but in the meantime they are going to start with the top tier PFL that currently has 8 teams participating this season.
