In all, 30 teams spread in four divisions will see action in the tournament spearheaded by the USC North Alumni Affairs headed by their president Ryan Villaflores.

Also part of the organizing committee are Lolito Belonguel (VP Internal), Ernest Evangelista (VP External), Kevin Laurel (treasurer), Joshua Mah (secretary), Ian Callet (PRO/ballclub head), Galimar Largo (school coordinator) and Jonathan Saso (commissioner).
