The tour­na­ment which was an­nounced on Tues­day, will fea­ture six teams- Ari­ma Sec­ondary, Fa­ti­ma Col­lege, Pre­sen­ta­tion Col­lege (Ch­agua­nas), Las Lo­mas Unit­ed and Queen's Roy­al Col­lege, is part of the Ari­ma Bor­ough Day cel­e­bra­tions the day be­fore, and is set to bring out the schools stars of yes­ter­year, such as, Sean Ros­ales, Mar­lon James and John (El Do­ra­do), for­mer Min­is­ter of Sports and Youth Af­fairs Anil Roberts, Garvin Mc Knight and Garvin Prescott (Fa­ti­ma Col­lege), Sher­win 'Tety' George and Sean Fred­er­icks (Ari­ma Sec­ondary), Randy Har­ris and Al­lan Hem Lee of Pre­sen­ta­tion Col­lege, Ch­agua­nas, and from QRC, Travis Mul­raine, Mar­lon Springer and An­dre Williams, the win­ning cap­tain of QRC's 1991 suc­cess­ful team.

Ari­ma May­or Lisa Mor­ris Ju­lian is the brain­child of the com­pe­ti­tion and has made avail­able a cash prize of $3,000 and a tro­phy for the win­ning team, and $2,000 and a tro­phy for the run­ner-up. The third-place team will al­so re­ceive a cheque for $1,000 and a tro­phy.
