Global to pay players, staff overdue wages within 10 days

Amidst allegations that the team is not paying its personnel, Global Football Club’s management met with Coco Torre, Commissioner of the Philippines Football League, to iron out its issues.

In a statement released by Inquirer reporter Cedelf Tupas on Thursday, Global expressed its commitment to pay the overdue salaries of its players and staff members within the next 10 days.

“The primary objective is to find workable solutions which will benefit both the players and the club so they can move forward and participate in the League,” read the message.

This development comes after claims made in different social media posts from artists, and a player stating that the club did not provide them the money they deserved after the services they rendered.

However, Global is not off the hook, as its standing in the PFL shall be evaluated by the responding body within the Philippine Football Federation. It remains to be seen how the club will stand after the proceedings.

“Further to that, the PFF Club Licensing First Instance Body, the PFF’s decision-making body responsible for the issuance of licenses to Professional Clubs, shall convene prior to the start of the League to discuss the status of Global FC and its participation.”

For his part, Torre stated that it is the PFL’s utmost prime concern to preserve its clubs’ integrity. If there is one sector in the league that must be appeased, then it is the athletes who play in it.

“Players are the League’s primary stakeholders and so we should treat issues such as these with utmost importance. I trust the club to resolve all these issues before proceeding with further plans.”

Ultimately, all these problems must be solved before the team steps on the pitch, as any other option is a travesty Philippine football can do without.
