MANILA, Philippines -- The Philippines has already signified its intent to get the rights to host the 2012 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup.

Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) chairman Monico Puentevella said the games may be played in Panaad, Bacolod and at another venue if necessary.

The Philippines earlier had the chance to host one of its semifinal games against Indonesia.

This chance, however, was shot down after former Philippine Football Federation president Jose Mari Martinez informed the AFF that the country has no venue suitable to hold the game. -- With a report from ANC
