National Youth Cup to get off the ground this weekend

Category: | 0 Replies

Thousands of the island's youth players will be on show for the next few weeks.

With the Barbados Football Association's 2018 season already well underway having seen the Williams Equipment Preseason Cup and start of Division 1 this week, thousands of the island’s best young players will be on show when the 2018 National Youth Cup kicks off tomorrow. Close to 90 teams are expected to let it all hang out over the coming weeks as clubs vie to be named the best in Barbados.


Competing across Under-9, Under-11, Under-13, Under-15 and Under-17 age groups, a mixture of well-established and fledgling teams will all be going after last year's winners.


After hosting a successful tournament in 2017 that saw Pro Shottas winning Under-9, Kick Start winning Under-11, the National Sports Council Blenheim Ballers winning Under-13, Whitehall winning Under-15 and Pro Shottas winning Under-17, the BFA has taken a bold decision to change up the format. Clubs will now be competing across two tiers. Tier 1 will see the top performers in last year's the Guardian Group Youth Football Tournament going at in a style similar to the UEFA Champions League. All others will reside in Tier 2 in the hopes of performances that would merit them a position in the top tier next year.


The competition will last about eight week and culminate with the semi-finals and finals at the end of March in each age group.


Tier 1 fixtures for tomorrow are as follows:
