FLOW ex­pects in­tense bat­tle in Su­per Cup fi­nal

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Marc Stamp Gleaner Writer

CARLO RED­WOOD, FLOW’s vice-pres­i­dent of mar­ket­ing and TV, is an­tic­i­pat­ing an in­tense bat­tle for this year’s Su­per Cup and $1 mil­lion win­ning in­cen­tive when Wolmer’s Boys’ and Corn­wall Col­lege square-off in the fi­nal at Sabina Park to­mor­row. Match time is 6 p.m.

Since the pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion started in 2014, this is the first time that it will be a ru­ral ver­sus ur­ban clash in the fi­nal, and the spon­sors are happy that this ‘bal­ance’ will be on show this year.

“I think that the FLOW Su­per Cup, in terms of fan sup­port, con­tin­ues to grow. The dy­nam­ics con­tinue to change as it is the first time that three daCosta Cup teams were in the semi-fi­nal. Now, the fi­nal is be­tween a Man­ning Cup and daCosta Cup team,” Red­wood told The Gleaner yes­ter­day.

“This fi­nal has es­tab­lished it as a na­tional school­boy com­pe­ti­tion. It is a bal­ance hav­ing a town ver­sus coun­try fi­nal. We want to con­tinue to im­prove and make the com­pe­ti­tion big­ger and bet­ter each year. We are sat­is­fied but will work harder,” he added.

Red­wood and his com­pany are brac­ing for a mas­sive crowd to­mor­row.

“We are ex­pect­ing a mas­sive crowd from west­ern Ja­maica as the tick­ets sales there are do­ing well,” Red­wood dis­closed.

“It will be a re­ally tough game be­tween the best team from the Man­ning Cup and the best team from the daCosta Cup,” he added.

There will be the usual en­ter­tain­ment pack­age dur­ing the half-time break to­mor­row.

Tick­ets are al­ready on sale and are avail­able at the fol­low­ing out­lets: Kingston and Port­more – Cap­tain’s Bak­ery (Cross Roads and down­town); Cuddy’z Sports Bar, New Kingston; Holy Trin­ity High School; To­tal Gas Sta­tion (Dun­robin Av­enue and Stan­ton Ter­race); West­ern Sports, Twin Gates Plaza; York Phar­macy, Half-WayTree Road; Pet­com, Port­more.
