The opening ceremony will commence in-between games as the sponsors and organizers will be officially declaring the Inter-secondary schools association football 2018 season open.

Jamaica College (JC) will play host to Hydel High School at 3:30 PM in the first encounter of the new DIGICEL MANNING CUP season. The defending champions are seeking their 6th consecutive title win as their dominance continues in the competition.

The second match of the day will see defending DaCosta Cup champions Rusea’s High battle arch rivals Green Island High, in what should be a mouthwatering encounter as both teams seek to start the season on a winning note.
