Metro Manila · Gatorade Chelsea Blue Pitch
Playing football on blue artificial grass might take a little getting used to at first, but the Gatorade Chelsea Blue Pitch at Circuit Makati is arguably one of the best football fields in Metro Manila.
Measuring 64.5 x 105 meters, the Blue Pitch is a huge, FIFA-size football field. It opened in January 2014 as one of the first facilities in Circuit Makati, the new entertainment and lifestyle complex in the north of Makati City. Construction of the pitch, which is also equipped with floodlight for training and matches in the evening, cost 18 million pesos.
Why blue? Blue is the color of the British football team Chelsea FC. The Chelsea Soccer School Philippines manages the facility together with Ayala Malls to promote the sport in the country. The school offers trainings for various age-groups: 6-8, 9-10, 11-13 and, during summer, for youth & adult groups. As of November 2016, the website is not working. The homepage says it is currently under maintenance.
You can also just go there and visit amateur and professional teams practicing, with the stunning Makati Skyline in the background.
