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

“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.”
