Meet the Pharmaton Life Chargers
Maxie Abad is a lawyer, a triathlete and a former player of the Philippine National Football Team.
A graduate of the University of the Philippines, Maxie Abad went on to secure his law degree at the Ateneo de Manila School of Law. He is currently Director and Chief Legal Counsel in an oil exploration and production company.
He is a member of the Polo Triathlon Team. Maxie Abad is a finisher in the 2007 Ironman Western Australia and multiple Ironman 70.3 Philippines.But football has always been his passion.
His encounter with the sport started at a very young age. While playing during recess in the second grade, the school’s football coach approached him and said, “Abad, after class I want you to report for football training with the Midgets B team.” Thus began a great love affair with the game.
Maxie Abad was captain of the Philippine National Football Team from 1995 to 1997. He was part of the team that represented the country in various recognized Asian competitions such as the Asian Cup qualifiers, the Tiger Cup and the Dunhill Cup. At a time when football did not yet enjoy the local popularity it does today, this is a noteworthy accomplishment.
When his playing career came to an end and his love for the game was passed on to his three sons, Maxie decided to set-up a football academy for kids. Together with Coach Ricardo Venus and fellow footballer Monty Roxas, Maxie organized the Manila Soccer Academy (MSA).
Born out of a desire to give back to the sport, Maxie Abad wanted MSA to be dedicated not only to creating good football players but to molding outstanding individuals as well.
MSA has been at the forefront of grassroots football in the Philippines for the past 12 years. Based at the Manila Polo Club, MSA provides soccer training and education for kids aged between 4 to 18 years of age. MSA likewise is a football club that provides its members competitive football through training and participation in both national and international tournaments.
