The 2014 United Football League is the fifth season of the UFL since its establishment as a semi-professional league in 2009. The UFL League kicked off on Saturday, January 11 with 9 teams in Division I and 12 teams in Division II.[1]

Stallion are the defending champions, having won the Division 1 of the 2013 United Football League season.[2]

Global outclassed Pachanga Diliman 7-2 on 12 June 2014 to clinch the 2014 United Football League title with three games to spare.[3]

Teams[edit]

The relegated Philippine Air Force from 2013 UFL Division 1 [4] will be replaced by Team Socceroo as the champions of 2013 UFL Division 2.[5] The Manila Nomads voluntarily stepped down from Division I and will play in Division II for this season citing its inability to comply with Division I's Foreigner Cap rule, which dictates that there should be a minimum of six Filipino players on the pitch at all times. Manila Jeepney and Ceres will make its debut at the league's Division II.[6] In this season, the Division I will play a triple round-robin system, increasing games from 18 to 24.
