Flow Cup begins today
The third staging of the highly anticipated Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)-FLOW Super Cup kicks off today with four games in the round of 16, at two of the nation's top venues.
Excelsior High will oppose Ocho Rios High at 5 p.m. followed by Wolmer's against Little London High in a double header at Sabina Park in Kingston.
Also on the day, Dinthill High face Bridgeport High at 5 p.m. and Cornwall College meet Denham Town High in the double header at Catherine Hall Complex in Montego Bay, St James.
Telecommunications firm FLOW announced first round games at the draw last Wednesday night in the knockout competition between seeded and unseeded teams from the Manning and daCosta Cup competitions in the 2016 staging of the ISSA/FLOW Super Cup.
The revelation was made during a live television broadcast to select the respective match ups.
Speaking on behalf of FLOW, Carlo Redwood, vice-president of Marketing & Television, shared that he is anticipating some fierce battles in the four-week long competition dubbed the "Champions League of Schoolboy Football."
"Every year, the competition has gotten a lot better and this year will be no different. I expect the rural daCosta cup teams to do a lot better this year and so we are excited about the match-ups which will provide high quality football and entertainment at both venues," Redwood explained.
The seeded Manning Cup teams are: Kingston College, Wolmer's, Jamaica College and Excelsior High, while the unseeded teams are Denham Town High School, Haile Selassie High, Holy Trinity High and Bridgeport High.
From the DaCosta Cup competition, the seeded teams are St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS), Rusea's High, Cornwall College and Dinthill Technical, while Clarendon College, Vere Technical, Little London High and Ocho Rios High are the unseeded teams.
