The only known annual award celebrating Philippine women’s football athletes, dubbed ‘Pinay Futbolera of the Year’, has just announced Alisha Del Campo of De La Salle University as its latest honoree.
Pinay Futbol, an online community focused solely on the promotion of Philippine women’s football, had taken the initiative of coming up with a yearly award that utilizes social media to recognize outstanding Filipina football players.
Del Campo is the accolade’s fourth recipient since its inception in 2016. Previous winners include Kyla Jan Inquig (2018), Kyra Dimaandal (2017) and Tejanee Isulat (2016).
She beat out her national teammates Inna Palacios, Sara Castañeda and Quinley Quezada after getting the most number of online votes.
The Lasallian striker had a solid argument to her name after taking UAAP Season 81 Best Striker and Rookie of the Year honors apart from being a champion herself. Not only did Del Campo perform well in the local scene, but she also had an outstanding year with the Philippine women’s national team.
The 20-year-old scored 10 of her 11 international goals last year alone. She also bore the unique distinction of being the only Pinay player to score in every competition she had participated in, both locally and internationally.
Del Campo netted 10 goals for La Salle in last year’s UAAP, then 11 goals in the recently concluded PFF Women’s League.
Her last action with the Philippine team saw her score a goal against Malaysia in last year’s Southeast Asian Games. She also produced goals in the AFC Olympic Qualifiers Second Round, AFF Women’s Championship, as well as in an international friendly against Macau.
