Wednesday, August 22, 2018 - Kingston, Jamaica: Digicel has announced a number of firsts for the 2018 Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) football season as the competition gets set to kick off on September 8.
Shortly after announcing the newly renamed Digicel Manning Cup and Digicel Walker Cup competitions at a launch at the Terra Nova Hotel in St. Andrew today, CEO of Digicel Jamaica, Justin Morin, reeled off a string of exciting initiatives involving teams and spectators throughout the season.
He announced Digicel’s newly-appointed Programme Ambassador for the secondary level competition, former national and English Premier League player, Ricardo Fuller.
Working with ISSA’s #ISSArealGOAL campaign, Fuller will provide leadership training and professional mentorship to select Manning Cup teams through a series of clinics. This will involve guiding the young, aspiring ballers on how to make it into the professional leagues after they’ve transitioned from the schoolboy football programme.
