This June 7, the Younghusband rivalry will finally be settled in the Clear Dream Match 3 – the biggest football all-star game in the country. Aside from the game being the final battle for Clear supremacy between the siblings, the Clear Dream Match is made even bigger with the presence of Manchester United legends Paul Scholes and Andy Cole.

After weeks of voting and competitive team campaigning, Team James and Team Phil rosters were officially decided last April 30 at Hyve.

With more than 700,000 votes, the 50-player voting pool consisting of the top ranked United Football League players based on statistics was trimmed down to 30, each one to be drafted by captains James and Phil Younghusband.



“With both teams tied at 1-1, the competition between the brothers is the most intense it has ever been. Both teams have been actively campaigning on social media just to rally their fans to vote which team will have the first draft pick,” Clear Brand Manager, Drew Copuyoc said.

Following last year’s formula the first draft pick was determined by the fans. Since March 10 fans have tirelessly supported their favorite team through digital participation –the number one most digitally active fan will get the chance to fly to Old Trafford to watch a Manchester United game live.



This year’s Clear Dream Match draft consisted of four rounds. Garnering more than 2 million points online, Team Phil was awarded the first draft pick then after, James and Phil took turns in selecting their top five.

The second round was the amateur selection, where Team James and Team Phil, together with their co-captains Nate Burkey and Carlie De Murga selected their picks from the top 6 amateurs.


In the third round, the brothers drew lots to complete their roster. Then in the last round, the brothers had wild card picks. The wildcard pick could be any player either within the voting pool, or outside the voting pool. But to stir things up, Team James was given an extra wild card pick for winning last year’s Clear Dream Match.

The biggest headline, however, was that online fan engagement would still continue until May 25. The Team with the highest points by May 26 will get the privilege of selecting the Manchester United legend they want on their team.


With the teams set, the battle for Clear Supremacy inches closer to completion. The Clear Dream Match will be on June 7th at the University of Makati football grounds. Tickets are sold in all SM ticket outlets starting May 1.
