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.

Montego Bay - Captain's Bakery (St James Street); Cars To Go, Catherine Hall; Fontana Pharmacy, Fairview Shopping Centre; and Western Sports, Baywest Shopping Centre.
