Philippines President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has promised her support to the Philippines Football Federation (PFF) for developing the 'beautiful game' in the country.

During her meeting with FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter and AFC President Mohamed Bin Hammam, who are here to inaugurate the PFF Headquarters built under FIFA Goal Project-II, Arroyo thanked the football governing bodies for their support to PFF.

Blatter and Bin Hammam drove straight to the Presidential Palace after landing in the Philippines capital from Hanoi on Friday night.

The duo also explained to Arroyo the development programmes carried out by both FIFA and AFC.

Philippines has recently been approved as the latest Vision Asia project by the AFC Technical and Vision Asia Committee.
