The United Football League, commonly known as UFL, is an association football league in the Philippines, governed by the United Football Clubs Association. The league is composed of two divisions, the first division with 10 clubs and the second with 12 clubs playing a double round-robin format. Like most football leagues around the world, it adopts the standard point system wherein match winners receive three points and losers get none. Each club receives a point, on the other hand, if the match ends in a draw. To avoid the country’s rainy season, the tournament is usually played from January to June each year. The league is currently sponsored by LBC Express Inc., and it is officially known as the LBC United Football League.
The league started as semi-professional tournament in 2009. Since then, it has been described as a thriving football league, organized by former football players and aficionados. At present, it is organized by the Football Alliance, whose long-term goal is the continued development of football in the Philippines through a premier league.
Since the UFL first started, only one club has been crowned league champions. The current defending champions are Philippine Air Force, who won the title in the 2010–11 season.
