The inauguration of this new tournament comes on the heels of the completion of the Second Round of the Premier League.
The top four teams will now be competing this weekend for a chance to win the first ever Easter Cup. The four teams vying for the Easter Cup are St Pauls, Conaree, Village Superstars and Newtown United.
The football action begins on Saturday at 6:00 pm at Warner Park when Conaree, ranked second, comes up against Village Superstars who are ranked third. The second match is between number one ranked St Pauls vs Newtown United, ranked fourth in the competition.
The winners of the Saturday matches will compete on Sunday for the Championship while the losers will compete for third place. Sunday’s Matches are also scheduled to start at 6:00 and 8:00 pm.
The admission for the two day tournament is $5.00. The SKNFA said that the decision to have the Easter Cup priced at a low cost is to show appreciation to the fans that have supported football during the past few months.
“It has been difficult to host Premier Division games in various locations and have the fans follow their teams and support the game. We think it is a way of saying thank you to the fans,” explained Stanley Jacobs General Secretary.
The winner of the Easter Cup will be playing for a Cash Prize and a trophy.
The winner of the Carnival Cup was Conaree and no doubt they would be trying to win another tournament. St Pauls lost the Carnival Cup to Conaree in penalty kicks and would definitely be trying to redeem themselves in this tournament. Village Superstars have also found their rhythm and played better football in the Second Round and should not be taken lightly.
Newtown United is also trying to recover after being knocked out early in the Carnival Cup.
The Easter Cup is set to be an exhilarating two days of football.
