“It’s great to be back in the Philippines and to play football with these kids and coaches from the AIA Philam Life 7’s Football League. I’m proud to be working with AIA and AIA Philam Life to help people live longer, healthier, and better lives,” Beckham said.
Beckham was joined with a few volunteer coaches that included Nico Bolzico, Daniel Matsunaga, Natasha Alquiros, Amanda Fernandez, Cesca Litton, Chris Johnson, Roberto Corsame, Roberto Olandez, and Richard Juan to name a few.
Former Azkal stars also joined Beckham along with Anton del Rosario which included Ally Borromeo, Simon Greatwich, Misagh Bahadoran, Jason Dejong, Ronald Muller and brothers, Phil and James Younghusband.
“With David’s presence bringing football front and center in everyone’s minds, we see this visit leaving a mark in the league for years to come,” AIA Philam Life 7’s Football League Founder, Anton del Rosario said.
