Hi-Lyte gives boost to KSAFA Major League

Rockfort's Maurice Moncreiffe attempts to clear the ball away from a Central Kingston opponent last season.

The 2012-2013 Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Major League competition is set to kick off this weekend, following the announcement of a $1.5m sponsorship deal with local sport drink manufacturers Hi-Lyte, at the Liguanea Club yesterday.

The competition will see a major change in format with the reintroduction of a semi-final and final, once fixtures of the National Premier League and other competitions, before the league format was introduced.

The majority of the funding for this year's competition is budgeted for gear and referee fees, which will cost $600,000 each, prize money will account for $200,000, while administrative functions will cost $100,000.

In previous years, the teams would have perhaps benefited from a larger share in prize money, but a recent initiative by the executive has placed more emphasis on ensuring that all competing teams have adequate gear and also that referee fees are paid, both issues have been known to have caused discontent in the past.
