1 OCTOBER 2020 - Manila, Philippines: United City Football Club (UCFC) proudly

announces its set main partners for the upcoming Philippine Football League (PFL),

namely with the Manila Regenerative Center (MARC), the forerunner in cutting-edge

technology of regenerative medicine, anti-aging and sports injuries and with Integrated

Market Services Asia Philippines Inc. (IMS Asia), the exclusive distributor of Midas


“We are proud to announce these two grounds- breaking partnerships for our Club, not

only because they come at a time of massive challenges to the global economy but also

because we were able to attract local brands that have never before supported

Philippines football,” states Eric M. Gottschalk, CEO of United City Football Club.

“Taping into the medical category during this pandemic seems like a logical choice for

football partnerships but we also believe that the Club will tremendously benefit from the

medical support and services provided to the team – and especially during these times,

the welfare of the players and staff is absolutely key.”

“MARC (Manila Regenerative Center) is in the forefront in the cutting-edge technology of

regenerative medicine, anti-aging and sports injuries and we are honored to be part of

the fast-growing Philippine football scene and be associated with the efforts of the

Philippine Football Federation in developing the sports in the country”, states Mario

Victor A. Bataclan, General Manager of MARC.

“United City Football Club is a team rich with heritage of triumphs and victories in the

Philippines and ASEAN region and we at MARC will be cheering and rally behind the

team in its quest to defend their national championship title.”

“Midas Magnesium is excited to render support and partnership to United City Football

Club for the upcoming Philippines Football League”, announced Nina F. Oronan,

Commercial Head, IMS Asia.

“Together with IMS Asia, an innovative and value driven company in the business of

healthcare and consumer distribution, Midas Magnesium products and health kits consist

Magnesium roll-on’s, sprays and WariActiv Vapocoolant, which are perfect for body pain

relief. We hope Midas Magnesium’s products will contribute to an optimal performance

of the team and pave the way for a victory for UCFC”.

Both brands will receive prominent branding space on the home and away kits of UCFC

with MARC being the main jersey partner on the front of the shirt while Midas Magnesium
