Innovating the football scene in the Philippines with the first rooftop football pitch using FIFA preferred producer, LIMONTA Artificial Turf. The football field is around quarter or one-fourth of the regular size football field, this is an attractive and competitive size in context to the football community here in the Philippines.

This will welcome small and big group altogether to experience the sport and provide them with a substantial amount of space, not too little and not too overwhelming. Just perfect for those casual pick-up games or even company team buildings.

The goal is to create leagues/series that would become the staple event of the Cherry Turf, with a plan to engage existing communities and also incite interest and create new groups within the community to experience football. Optimal Athletics Inc. plans to develop the entire rooftop not just focusing on the pitch, but to create an environment that is welcoming for both football and non-football enthusiasts. A place where people can sit back, relax, eat and drink while watching people play football.
