Emperador Stadium (also known as Mckinley Hill Football Field ) is an all-weather football pitch in the Philippines made of artificial turf. Developed by real estate developer Megaworld Corporation and constructed by All Asia Structures, Inc. (AASI), it sits on a 15,000 square meter land in McKinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio, City of Taguig. The stadium has a seating capacity of 2,000[1] and is home to the United Football League (UFL).

The stadium is named after its sponsor Emperador Distillers Incorporated, a liquor making company, and a sister company of Megaworld.

Sports Events[edit]

In April 2012, the UFL signed a deal with Megaworld that will give the league priority on the field usage for the next four years. The league had its first game at the stadium on February 9, 2013, a Division One match between Manila Nomads and Philippine Air Force,[3] with Nomads winning the match, 1–0. A doubleheader was supposed to mark the stadium's debut but the match in Division Two between Cebu Queen City United FC and Dolphins United FC got cancelled due to the forfeiture of Cebu Queen City United FC.
