Cortal SQR Continues Support for Philippine Football



Last August 17, Pharma-Rex, Inc., the official marketer of the new Cortal SQR, once more pledged its support for Philippine Football though its sponsorship for the Philippine team competing in the upcoming Homeless World Cup in Paris, France happening this August 21- 28, 2011. 

Cortal SQR likewise officially turned-over a check to the Philippine Azkals as additional support for their upcoming matches in the Long Teng Cup in Taiwan and the Southeast Asian Games in Indonesia.


Unknown to many of us, the Homeless World Cup, as I’ve found out, is an international football match that aims to address and alleviate homelessness through football. The yearly event started in 2003 in Austria and has been running for the past nine years while being held at various countries that span four continents.

This year will be the Philippines’ fourth appearance in the said competition. The street soccer team called Jeepney, which is competing there, is being currently managed by Urban Opportunities for Change Foundation. They rely on sponsorships and donations in order to finance their operations. Thanks to the support of Cortal SQR, the Philippine contingent to the Homeless World Cup would be able to continue representing the country in this annual worldwide event.


Just last month, Cortal SQR, with its formulation of Ibuprofen and Paracetamol, was launched as the official pain reliever of the Philippine Azkals. (Please read my blog post about the event here.) Since then, the brand has been providing full support to the Philippine National Football Team. After their participation in the 2014 World Cup Qualifiers, where the Philippine team reached the second round of the qualifiers for the first time, the Azkals are now gearing up for new matches this coming November.


According to Lito Tadena, President of Pharma-Rex Inc., they saw the potential of football in the country thus their hope that “our support for the sport will help sustain and develop more football talents and establish the Philippines as a premiere team in Asia thereby instilling national pride.”

Here’s cheering on both Azkals and Jeepney teams in their respective fights for glory. I believe they will continue to bring pride to the country whatever the competition results may be.
