LISCR Unification Cup Set For May 27

  • LISCR Football Club is pleased to announce its inaugural preseason tournament, LISCR Unification Cup which will begin on Sunday, May 27 and ends on Tuesday, June 5. It will be the second preseason tournament for the club after the 2017 LISCR Trust Tournament which was won by LISCR FC. The tournament will feature 18 teams from the first, second, third division of Liberian football and an active all-star team comprising of players based in India in the senior competition, while four youth teams from Montserrado will featured in the youth category.

The U15 teams of Monrovia Football Academy, CT United, Cece United and Sam Johnson Academy will play in the youth competition. All categories will be played on a knockout basis with the Antoinette Tubman Stadium serving as the venue of all games.

LISCR FC secretary general, Mr. Swen Bedell told LISCR FC media, the club decided to launch the tournament due to the in-activeness of various national leagues within the country. Mr. Bedell said it was the intention of the club include more teams, but financial situation limited the tournament to 18 teams which he feels it’s a great opportunity for participating teams.

“It has been a long time since the end of the national league. The national leagues are yet to begin, and it is frustrating for clubs. We have decided to launch this tournament to reawaken the spirit of football. We could have included more teams but 18 were invited because of the huge money involved. I think it an opportunity for clubs to test their players after a long time without league football ”, Mr. Bedell told liscrfc.com.

Clubs participating in the tournament will be given the amount of US $150 as preparation fees while the winner of the senior category will walk away with US $ 1,000 and a trophy. Second place will pocket US $ 500 and the winner of the U15 category will earn US $ 100. Meanwhile, there will be no prize for the second-place team in the U15 category.
