TELECOMMUNICATIONS GIANT LIME could raise the pot next year in the LIME Pelican football challenge to $150 000 if the high level of discipline and fair play is maintained.
Speaking at the launch of this year’s tournament at Kensington Oval yesterday evening, LIME’s managing director Alex McDonald told dozens of footballers he was happy with last year’s inaugural competition and the challenge was for them to maintain it.
“I said last year that we would not remain on board if we were not happy. The fact that we are back is proof that we liked what we saw. The challenge for the teams is to make this season even better,” he said.
Two new franchises have been added to this country’s most financially rewarding out-of-season competition with 12 teams vying for the top prize of $100 000 in the tournament slated to kick off September 9 at Kensington Oval.Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
