The Ateneo Football Center and Solar Sports, in cooperation with the University Athletics Office and the Alumni UAAP Football Team 1989-1991, is hosting the airing of the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany at the Blue Eagle Gym, Loyola Heights campus.

The airing of the world’s most popular and largest spectator sport on the Loyola campus is a tribute to the three-peat UAAP champions – the Ateneo Men’s Football Team – and the other champion varsity teams from the high school and grade school for their highly successful football campaign in the past few years. It also acknowledges the growing number of football supporters in the Ateneo community.
