“This year, I can assure you given the preparations I have seen. We have a much better tournament coming up this year. Everything is poised for a wonderful season.” Wilson Arthur said at the preliminary stage draw.

“We are grateful to MTN. This is the last year of the sponsorship. I can see signs that they will continue. We are hoping that they will continue and we will attract more sponsors to join them” he expressed.

The ever present Die Hard Supporters Union were there to entertain guests, media and the club reps.

Clubs from divisions one and two leagues have been paired in the preliminary stage of the competition, which is expected to be played from Tuesday, November 1 to 10, 2022.
