In a statement released by the Lizzy Sports Complex, the Director of Sports of the facility, Mr. Jamil Maraby said this year promises to mark an improvement over the previous events.
“With all the big names participating this year, it’s going to be tough and equally entertaining to watch. Whether the reigning champions will retain the cup or lose it to another side remains a feat to watch,” he said.
