Meanwhile, seven teams have already been chosen to compete in the finals, which will be held at the National Tennis Centre in Villa.

Teams already in the finals are ECGC Ball Boyz, Mareyna Bar and Grill White Squall, Corner Bar Double Trouble, Digicel Emily’s Strikers, Bequia United and IFC Ballers.

Last year, the local team, Team Crew, placed third in the regional finals in Trinidad and as a result they have gained a pass straight into the 2015 finals of the local leg of the competition.

The tournament is being managed by the St Vincent and the Grenadines Football Association (SVGFA) for the St Vincent Brewery Limited. The final team will be chosen on June 14, during the Petit Bordel leg of the competition.

Registration fee is EC$40 and teams must comprise seven players and a manager, four on the field of play at one time and team members must be 18 years or over. Females are also allowed to participate.

Teams that come out on top in the preliminary round will receive EC$500 and five cases of Guinness, while the team that wins on the night of the finals will get EC$6,000 and a chance to represent SVG in Jamaica at the regional finals, which runs from June 27 to 28 this year.
