Ceres-Negros has confirmed its fixtures in the group stage of the inaugural Copa Paulino Alcantara this September.
The Busmen who have been drawn in Group A with Stallion Laguna and Davao Aguilas will start their campaign against the Mindanao squad on September 1.
The league champions will play Stallion consecutively on September 15 & 19 while they will complete their assignments against Davao on the 22nd.
All Ceres-Negros group stage matches will be held at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.
The winners of both cup groups will earn the luxury to host the one-game semifinal while the Final is set to be played at the Rizal Memorial in October.
The Copa Paulino Alcantara is the first professional football cup competition in the Philippines.
The winner of the cup will be given a slot in the group stages of the 2019 AFC Cup, Asia’s second-tier club competition.
