Football is one of the events affected by the decision, with eight UAAP and at least six NCAA matches having to be postponed by the presence of Pope Francis.

The UAAP is in its final set of matches this week before the postseason begins next week. Right now, there is not much clarity as to what is the set of postseason matchups in both men's and women's football. This is a way to provide clarity for the situation for those who might need it.
Here are the current men's football standings:
