RSPL double-header set for National Stadium

first_imgIndependence Park Limited (IPL) has brokered a partnership with the Premier League Clubs Association (PLCA) for a Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) double-header at the National Stadium on Monday night. The scheduled Monday-night games will see Boys’ Town playing Humble Lion, starting at 5:30 p.m., to be followed by a clash between old foes Tivoli Gardens and Harbour View, which kicks off at 8:00 p.m. Both parties decided to come together to have games played in the nation’s best facility in an effort to aid the development of local football. Major Desmon Brown, general manager at IPL, the government agency responsible for the National Stadium complex, says that Monday’s games are being played on a trial basis. “It is a trial. We hope that it will be successful in order to continue playing Premier League games there,” Major Brown told The Gleaner yesterday. “The gate receipts will be shared 50-50 between the IPL and PLCA and the clubs will also earn.” “We want to go back to the days where successful clubs’ matches were held at the stadium in the right atmosphere. Now, it is part of the drive to develop local football,” Major Brown added. The IPL will be responsible for additional cost to stage the games. Meanwhile, general manager of the PLCA, Patricia Garel, says that the league’s title sponsor Red Stripe is also fully behind the matches being played inside the National Stadium. “Red Stripe is fully involved. We think that the selection of games would be good to attract spectators as it depends on the turnout on Monday night,” Garel shared. Only the grandstand section will be open with tickets going for $500.last_img read more
