The competition, which kicks off this Saturday at National Gymnasium, will feature a total of 32 teams vying for the top prize of $400,000. Twenty-four of the 32 teams will be in action on the opening night which will account for 12 anticipated showdowns.

Among the notable teams slated to compete are Gold is Money, Sparta Boss, Back Circle, Future Stars, Bent Street, Leopold Street, Albouystown-A, Tigerbay, New Market Street, Broad Street, North East La Penitence, Channel-9 Warriors, Tucville, California Square, Showstoppers, MBK All-Stars, NK Ballers, Swag Entertainment, Ol Skool Ballers, Mocha, Buxton Diamond, YMCA and Ansa All-Stars.

According to spokesperson of Legacy Entertainment, Esan Griffith, “The mash classic is going to be a real classical showdown. We (legacy) have really dug deep despite the challenges faced and we hope to achieve one of our aims, which is bringing together communities through football.”
Brand Manager of Magnum, Edison Jefford, noted that in keeping with Guyana’s Mashramani period, the “Mash Cup” will be a bacchanal tournament of sorts with entertainment that has never been seen at the local futsal arena. Determine Immortal Sound along with DJ “Father Moey” will provide the game days’ entertainment.
Meanwhile, Brian Smith, Representative of the National Sports Commission (NSC), said, “The NSC is pleased to be associated with the tournament… These tournaments are fertile ground for grassroot development.”
