The venue for the final of the Flow Champions Cup (FCC) All Island Knock Out competition has been changed to the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex, home of Arnett Gardens FC.
The Professional Football Clubs Association (PFAJ), organisers of the competition and title sponsors Flow, have agreed that the change in venue would be in the best interest of the event as the venue will accommodate the large number of fans expected to attend the FCC finals.
Ahead of the final, football fans may recapture the excitement of the Flow Champions Cup semi-finals matches by watching the repeat broadcasts on Flow TV (Channel 100) on Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20 at 6 p.m.

Gareth Bale says speculation concerning his health following his record 100 million euros transfer to Real Madrid has been "blown out of proportion massively".
Bale went on late to help Madrid beat Malaga 2-0 yesterday, making his fourth appearance in eight possible matches after recovering from his second leg injury since his blockbuster move this summer.
He says "it was just a little thigh strain. I think the fact that I haven't had a lot of game time and pre-season games or training or running, you always pick up little niggles."
Bale's absence led to sports daily Marca publishing that he had a back hernia that could require surgery. Madrid responded that this was false, instead saying that Bale had a non-serious "disc bulge".
