"The FA Charity Cup serves as a fitting end to the very successful UFL 2014 Season. We have invited the top 6 1st Division teams to take part in this special knockout tournament. It is our way of giving back to the football loving community that has supported us throughout the years," said UFL General Manager Rely San Agustin.

League champions Global and second placed Loyola Meralco Sparks await in the semi-finals, awaiting the winners in the quarterfinal ties between Kaya and Pachanga Diliman, and Stallion and Green Archers United. All quarterfinal and semi-final matches will be played in two-legged contests, with scores carrying over from the first game into the second leg.
