BAROTAC NUEVO got the title for the WORLD RECORD
nonstop match for 35hours and 25 minutes
tarting at 8:35 A.M. Friday until 8:15 P.M. Saturday on the football field at the public plaza of the town, 30 kilometers northeast of Iloilo City.

After nine games, the team from the Iloilo State College of Fisheries (ISCOF) won by scoring 136 goals against the 133 of the Barotac Nuevo Comprehensive High School (BNCHS) team.

Each competitor won eight games and played to a draw, three others including the last game

We believed we have set a new world record and the players are happy despite the fatigue," Duffie Botavara, general secretary of the Barotac Nuevo Football Club and the Iloilo Football Association, said in a telephone interview.

Botavara said the previous record for the longest football game played was 31 hours in Australia.

Aside from aiming for the record of the longest game played, Botavara said they also wanted to set the record for the most number of games played continuously.

Cheered by their townmates, the two teams composed of 18 persons each played nine 90-minute games.

Each game has two 45-minute halves with a 10-minute break between halves.

Nine referees working in three shifts officiated the game.

Botavara said because of the duration of the game, they slightly modified the rules and a "floating substitution" format was adopted.

This allowed the unlimited substitution of players who returned to the game even after they have been substituted.

Football regulations allow only two substitutions per game and players who have been replaced cannot return to the game.

"We ensured that at any given time, nine to 10 players from each team were on the field while the others rested," said Botavara.

The players did not sleep and only rested at the players' quarters where they also ate, said Botavara.

The Barotac Nuevo school is composed of players 17 years old and below while the Iloilo fishery school players belonged to the collegiate division.

Each team had a member of the national team.

"Many wanted to join the game but we had to turn them down because of the limited number of players allowed," said Botavara.

For the special game, lights were installed at the public plaza for the first time but a white colored ball was used in the evening for easier visibility.

Botavara said around 3,000 residents flocked to the football field to watch the game at its peak and encourage the players.

The organizers of the event will send a video of the game to the Guinness World Records to authenticate and make the new record official.

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippines may soon hold the distinction of having the world's longest soccer game, following a 35-plus-hour game in Iloilo province last weekend.

Online news site The News Today reported Monday that players from Barotac Nuevo town broke the world record with the marathon game Saturday.

"Their intensity was so great they were still putting up a tight defense up to the last match. It was so intense that the teams nearly got into a fight when one player shoved his opponent during the last game," said Duffie Botavara, secretary general of the Iloilo Football Association.

Organizers and officials of the World Football Marathon met Monday to finalize the documentation of the match, including the continuous video coverage of all the games.

The video clip will be submitted to Guinness World Records for certification, according to Botavara.

"We are preparing the documentation and the records of the game for our efforts to be recognized," he said. Until then, he said the record will be unofficial.

Organizer Elmer Bedia, a former RP national player and Philippine's Mr. Football in 1986, said the certification is needed to "officially" break the 32-hour record held by Australia.

At Saturday's marathon match, soccer teams of Barotac Nuevo Comprehensive National High School and the Iloilo State College of Fisheries played against each other for 35 hours and 20 minutes at the town's public plaza when they stopped at around 7:30 pm Saturday.

The match began at about 8:40 a.m. Friday. Some 19 45-minute games were played during the match.

ISCOF prevailed over BNCNHS, 136-133, in what Botavara called "a tight match."

"It wasn't a giveaway match. Both teams played tight defense, the reason for the low score unlike that in Australia," he said, comparing their match to that in Armidale, Australia, where Joeys Football Club won with about a hundred point-advantage over its opponent in a game that lasted for 32 hours and 50 minutes.

Of the 19 games played, ISCOF and BNCNHS each won eight matches, and tied in three.

Botavara said the players would have played another game but the coaches decided to end the match after more than 35 hours.

He said the last game was so physical that one player shoved his opponent at one point.

After the last game, Rep. Ferjenel Biron awarded the players from the two teams with cash and medals.
