Redwood predicts best ever FLOW Super Cup
FLOW's vice-president of marketing Carlo Redwood predicts that the fourth edition of the Super Cup could be the greatest tournament yet.
The drawing for the highly anticipated FLOW Super Cup, presented by Coca Cola, were done on Thursday at the ATL Audi showroom. The match-ups see the four seeded teams in urban and rural football this season, against the four unseeded.
The seeded teams are: Kingston College, Jamaica College, Clarendon College, St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) and while the unseeded teams are St Andrew Technical High School (STATHS), Calabar, Dinthill Technical High School and Rusea's High School.
The pairings see a grand battle brewing between teams from the ISSA/FLOW Manning and daCosta Cup competitions on November 10 and 11, in the first-round action scheduled for the Montego Bay Sports Complex in St James.
On Friday November 10 action will see Calabar High facing Clarendon College at 5:00 p.m, to be followed by STATHS vs STETHS at 7:00 p.m.
Then on Saturday, November 11, first round continues with Jamaica College battling Dinthill at 5 p.m., then Kingston College up against Rusea's at 7:00 p.m.
Gates will open at 3:00 p.m.
"This could be the greatest Super Cup tournament yet." Now a three-week long competition, the "Champions League of Schoolboy Football continues to improve in both support and execution," shared Redwood.
"Each year we continue to look for more ways that more persons can enjoy the matches. This year, online, using our Flow Sports app, Jamaicans in every nook and cranny will be able to experience the magic of the ISSA/FLOW Super Cup right in the palm of their hands using their mobile devices.
" I should also share with you that match day one will be broadcast via radio and streamed live on the FLOW Jamaica YouTube Page.
Our live TV 2017 ISSA/Flow Super Cup Broadcast programme will then debut on FLOW Sports (Channel 690) on Saturday, November 11," Redwood said.
While we are making every effort to ensure a top quality broadcast, we would still like to see bumper crowds filling the stadiums,
On a note of structure, we will be implementing a "no extra time rule" for play. This means that if at the end of regulation time, a winner has not been decided, we will proceed directly to a penalty shoot-out," he concluded.
