Following the success of its first event held last March, the OMNI Cup is set to return with the second edition of its football tournament named OMNI Cup: Fight to the Finish to be held on July 13 at the McKinley Hill Stadium.

With the goal of engaging people to have a more active lifestyle, the one-day, seven-a-side football tournament sponsored by OMNI Electrical and Lighting will feature 24 teams split into two divisions of 12 squads each.

The event’s other partners are Head and Shoulders Philippines, MADs Essentials: Food for the Skin, Underground Football, and Suicide Squad F.C. and media partners Manila Bulletin, Fox Sports Philippines, and Balita Sports.

Division 1 is open to all athletes while Division 2 is considered beginner-intermediate, wherein current or former UFL, PPL, and PFL players are disallowed from joining.

At least one female athlete on the field is required at all times for Division 1 play while three female footballers are required to be on the pitch for Division 2 action.

The first OMNI Cup had Suicide Squad Goons triumphing in Division 1 with Kickstart F.C. winning the Division 2 crown.

The second staging of the OMNI Cup tournament will also feature an all-star 11-a-side exhibition match featuring player representatives from all teams involved.
