The Chairman of the Committee saddled with the responsibility of organising the competition,Barrister Aderemi Adetula, during the draws said the competition would start from the zonal level.

Adetula said instead of playing the knock out format that the teams would not have the feel for their money, they decided to make it lively, with a round rubbing format, and made it zonal before coming to Akure at the semi final level

Also, a member of the committee and Chairman of Ondo State Referees Council, Fidelix Fabidun, said this was the highest number of teams in the state that had registered and participated in the competition.

Fabidun noted that out of the 19 teams, eight would be playing in Akure, four teams would be playing in Owo and six teams would be playing in Ondo.
