The 2018 ISSA/FLOW Super Cup competition is set to get under way on November 10 with all eight teams vying for the top prize of $1 million.

Flow has teamed up with English Premier League giants Manchester United as a Flow Super Cup All-Star team will be selected to participate in a full day training session with the club's coaches.

This session will be held with the view of developing their skills while giving the players a taste of a professional training environment.

Carlo Redwood, vice-president of Marketing of Flow, said his organisation is committed to helping with the development of the sport.

"Our continued aim is to help boost the marketability of the local football product," said Redwood.

"As we all know, it takes cash to care and development requires funding. Increased investment must be a key priority both at the school and community level, as well as through the national competitions organised by ISSA," Redwood said.


Embraced the vision


He added: "The ISSA/FLOW Super Cup is intended to benchmark what excellence looks like, so we express our thanks to the members of Corporate Jamaica, ISSA, and other stakeholders, who have embraced the vision and are working in the background to move the sport forward.

This year's competition has scaled down from 16 teams to eight teams and from four weekends to three.

The top four teams from the ISSA/FLOW Walker Cup Corporate Area competition will face off against the top four rural area based ISSA/Flow Ben-Francis semi-finalists for a total prize money of $1.8 million.

Dr Walton Small, president of ISSA, said that he commends the FLOW team and the many sponsors for significant investment and the planned improvements to the 2017 season, which will guarantee an engaging and exciting competition.

"Flow's investment extends far beyond cash, as their guidance in how to structure and market the product is immeasurable," said Small.

"We have already seen significant gains this year with the new format and we look forward with high anticipation to the Super Cup competition," he said.

Tickets will go on sale on November 8, at Flow Carlton store on Half Way Tree Road in Kingston and the Flow Store Fairview in Montego Bay.

The final will take place on November 25.
