American football in the Philippines

Way back in 2009 were the ArenaBall Philippines (ABP) introduce the first American Football (tackle football) league in the country. It started with only four participating teams, "The Bandits", "The Juggernauts", "The Wolves" and "The Rebels" (former "The Barracudas"). ABP Season 4 opened last September 21, 2013 introducing new expansion team "The Knights". ABP Season 4 ended February 15, 2014 with the reigning 4-time Champion "The Bandits".

ABP is under The American Tackle Football Association of the Philippines (ATFAP), a member of Philippine Olympic Committee (POC), and a member of the International Federation of American Football (IFAF).
