The North Leeward Sports Association is running the competition. The tournament was delayed owing to the unavailability of playing fields. According to an official, “We have worked hard to ensure that the tournament remains a reality. Teams and spectators were anxiously awaiting the commencement.”

Twelve teams are in this year’s championship, one more than last year. The teams are divided into two zones. The two top teams in each zone would qualify for the semi-finals. Games will be at Petit Bordel Playing Field, Saturdays and Sundays.
