Philippines 1935


The 1935 Philippines Football Championship featured two foreign teams, the Singapore military side Malaya Command and a selection from the N.I.V.B., the federation of the Dutch East Indies which had made a favourable impression at the 1934 Far Eastern Games in Manila. Due to internal conflicts within the N.I.V.B., the 16 players came mostly from Soerabaja (though without Tiong Hoa players, as this club had been excluded by the N.I.V.B.), with 3 additional players from both Malang and Makassar (which provided both and the centre forward).

NB: an extra match between the national team of the Philippines and the N.I.V.B.

    the national side visited Celebes and Java.
