So far, thirty two teams have registered and the team winning the championships would also take home a first place prize of $300,000 and the Macorp trophy. The second place finisher also wins a trophy but a smaller cash prize of $100,000 while third and fourth place finishers receive $60,000 and $40,000, respectively.
Meanwhile, the organizers are appealing to fans as well as footballers to be on their best behaviour in order to avert a similar incident as that in the Namilco Football Festival.

Several rigid rules have been stipulated and players are requested to request copies of these rules from the organizers. Otherwise, all other rules applicable by FIFA will be implemented.
