SIFF Marketing Manager, Vivian Wickham is pleased to announce that the Solomon Islands largest softdrink manufacturer Solomon Breweries will provide cash prizes worth almost $30,000 for the Solomon Cup tournament.

An agreement to formalize this deal was signed last week between Wickham and Solomon Breweries management. Solbrew is one of football’s biggest partners and SIFF is confident this relation will continue to expand into the future.

Under the sponsorship deal, Solbrew will meet all the cash prizes for the competition. The winner of the tournament will receive $10,000. The other prizes are; $7,500 (first runner up), $5,000 (second runner up), $3,000 (third runner up).

Wickham has also negotiated increases to the “golden boot” prize from $200 (previous agreement) to $1,000. The “Fairplay” prize has also been increased to $2,000 and Player of Tournament $1,000.

Meanwhile, Honiara, the nation’s capital is building up for the week-long soccer festival, with a grand opening ceremony planned before the matches kick off in the afternoon (October 15).

All the participating teams will be dressed in the province’s traditional costume and led into Lawson Tama grounds by some of the countries top child Futsal players.
