UPDATE 22 November 2013: The decision to hold the Champs on 23 August 2014 will be reviewed due to a clash with the International Cup. This decision has been delayed due to the death of former Eagles’ President, Steve Arthur.
Peter Hammon, President of the Philippine Eagles has just confirmed some “great news”.
“I would like to inform AFL Asia that the PAFL last night confirmed that we will be hosting the 2014 Asian Championships in Clark. The only change was the proposed date that we mentioned earlier. (Instead) of October, we are now looking to hold the the event on Saturday 23rd August 2014.
“In the next week or so will begin our arrangements to start organizing the event.”
AFL Asia President, Phil Johns, added, “It’s not easy to host the Asian Champs and the Thailand Tigers have done an amazing job over the previous three years.
“Now, we thank the Philippine Eagles, who are becoming increasingly active on the Asian footy circuit, very much.
“Bring on the 2014 Asian Champs in the Philippines!”
