WESTERN BUREAU:

The dazzling new Flow Super Cup was unveiled yesterday in Montego Bay at the launch of the 2015 edition of the cash-rich schoolboy competition, which, according to Carlo Redwood, vice-president, marketing and products, FLOW, promises more money and lots more fun.

More than $2 million in prize money will be up for grabs to the 16 qualifiers - eight from the Manning Cup and another eight daCosta Cup teams.

"We remain committed to the players that will participate, the schools that will benefit, and of course, the wider community," stated Redwood.

All the qualifiers are set to make $25,000 upfront, with the added incentive from Western Sports that will provide every player with Nike football boots. The overall money will increase with each round for which the schools qualify.

In total, $25,000 goes to each qualifier; $50,000 to the schools that reach the quarter-finals, while the four semi-finalists will pocket $100,000 each and the winners an additional $625,000, making the overall value in cash to the winning school $1 million.

Three venues have been selected to host matches in the Flow Super Cup. These are the National Stadium, Sabina Park and the Montego Bay Sports Complex. The Super Cup is set to kick off on October 24.
