It should be non-stop excitement today at St Ann Bauxite Oval when a number of past and current West Indies and Jamaica players, and World and Olympic double sprint champion Usain Bolt take the field for the second Chris Gayle-led CJ Sports Pro 15/15 Extravaganza.
The event, which is slated to get under way at 9:00 a.m., will showcase four parish invitational teams, who will each play a knockout game, before the grand final, which is slated to get under way at 3:00 p.m.
The first match of the day will see St Elizabeth with Jerome Taylor, Darren Powell, Ridley Jacobs and Dinanath Ramnarine taking on home team St Ann, which will include the likes of Xavier Marshall, Howard Harris, Pedro Collins and Winston Benjamin.
Showdown at noon
Action will then move on to the noon encounter between Bolt's Trelawny and Gayle's Kingston and St Andrew. Trelawny will include Ramnaresh Sarwan and Corey Collymore, while turning out for the capital city will be Wavell Hinds, Richie Richardson, Courtney Walsh, Curtly Ambrose and Runako Morton.
Proceeds from the event will go towards providing gear, equipment and computers to at least eight primary, all-age and high schools sports programmes in the parishes of St Ann and Kingston and St Andrew.
