Linden to crown Guinness football champions on Saturday
The Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Linden Championship will be decided Saturday with the staging of the semi-final and grand finale, as defending champion Swag Entertainment battles Silver Bullets, and DC Ballers oppose Amazings at the Christianburg Hardcourt.
Swag Entertainment defeated Darkside 2-0 in their quarterfinal section to move one step closer to retaining their title. On the other hand, Silver Bullets overcame an emerging Germans outfit 2-1 in their quarterfinal meeting.
On the other hand, the experienced Amazings unit made light work of High Rollers 3-1 in the previous section, while DC Ballers bested Whap-Whap 1-0 in an unlikely win.
Winners of the semi-final matches will progress to the championship match. The losers will contest the third-place playoff. The eventual tournament victor will pocket $300,000 and the championship trophy.
They will also earn an automatic berth to the national championship. The runner-up will receive $200,000, and the corresponding accolade. The third and the fourth-place finisher will walk away with $100,000, and $70,000 respectively.
