UCC United University Shield 2019 Launches with an Added Incentive

UCC’s pre-season tournament is always one where demand outweighs supply. Every year, it has looked to include a different set of teams – most usually 2 from the Premier Division & 2 from the First Division all going well. But that wasn’t the case this season.

Teams are as follows:

1. UCC United

2. Satellite Taxis

3. Marlboro Trust

4. Colso Celtic

The opening fixtures are taking place this week – with the final round on Tuesday 27th August.

Fixtures: (all KO @ 6:45pm)

Tuesday 20th August

Satellite Taxis v Marlboro Trust

UCC United v Colso Celtic

Thursday 22nd August

UCC United v Marlboro Trust

Satelitte Taxis v Colso Celtic

Tuesday 27th August

Marlboro Trust v Colso Celtic

Due to both Satellite Taxis & UCC United finishing on level points in the Sports Gear Direct Premier Divsion 2018 / 2019 season, this meant that a play-off was needed to find the League’s official runners-up. However, the last fixture for them both in the league was against each other so a decision was made to use the University Shield as a double whammy tie to determine second place. This game takes place on Tuesday 27th August out in the Farm, with a 6:45pm kick off.
