Visayas FPL Tournament

PFF plan to start this regional tournament in first quarter 2009;
nothing seems to have come of this


Mindanao FPL Tournament 

PFF plan to start this regional tournament in second quarter of 2009;
nothing seems to come of this



NB: apparently the AFC are trying to set up a 'viable' national
    league in the framework of the Vision Philippines programme,
    and the FPL is discontinued; workshops are being held to 
     'begin the process of charting a bold new future for the sport'
    in the Philippines, starting with the province of Cebu as a 
    'pilot project'.
