The Philippine Boys Under-16 national team will participate in the JENESYS 2017 Japan-ASEAN U-16 Football Tournament which will be held from 8-12 March 2018 at the Miyazaki Prefectural Comprehensive Sports Park in Miyazaki, Japan.
The tournament is composed of ten ASEAN countries and domestic Japanese teams including the Japan Boys Under-15 National Team. The Philippines U16 team is in Group B with Indonesia and Cambodia.
The team is composed mostly of the players that participated in the AFC Under-16 Championship 2018 Qualifiers that was held in Yangon, Myanmar last September 2017.
The head coach is Roxy Dorlas assisted by Christian Salanguit, Christopher Pedimonte, Ralph Datoy, and Joshua Castelo.
