Nakatakdang magpalit ng team monicker ang pambansang koponan sa football.

Ayon kay Philippine Football Federation National Teams Director at team manager Freddy Gonzalez, panahon na para iwanan ng koponan ang pangalang “Azkals”.

“While the Azkals name was great, it has served its purpose and we feel like we’re going to the next step of Philippine football. That’s (moniker) something that we’re not really thinking about but will eventually come into play either from us or from the fans,” ani Gonzales.

Ang team moniker na Azkals ay binitbit ng pambansang koponan mula nang pumutok ang kasikatan nito noong 2010’s.
