AFC superviser to organise Manila's World Cup fun

Former Philippine Olympic Committee president Cristy Ramos-Jalasco will be in charge of organizing World Cup football festivities in Metro Manila this June. National Capital Region Football Association president Jose Vito Borromeo gave Jalasco her newest assignment, almost a week after she returned from Bangkok to supervise the matches of the Asian Football Confederation women’s under-19 competitions.

According to the Manila Standard Today, the World Cup opening celebration that Borromeo has tasked Jalasco to organise will start on 9 June at the Greenhills Shoppings Center.

Jalasco, a daughter of former President Fidel V. Ramos, is a senior adviser to the NCRFA board and chairman of its cities development program and was appointed last year as match commissioner of the AFC’s competitions for women.
