It will also be lucrative for the clubs involved with $8000 in cash and prizes on offer.

Narangba FC President Allan Takken offered his thanks to the other hosting clubs and to the major sponsor, “The challenge would not have gone ahead without the support of Gorilla Sports. With the other clubs who have expressed their interest in hosting the competition, they have helped facilitate a quality pre-season tournament for Capital and Premier League teams in south-east Queensland.”
