ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The Terry Evans Cup 2016 will mark the beginning of a new season for the BVI Football Association (BVIFA) domestically when the competition makes a return on Sunday April 17, 2016 at the AO Shirley Ground after a year’s absence from the football calendar.

With the AO Shirley Grounds renovation work now complete and the venue open once again to the Association’s planned competitive, organised fixtures, the Competitions Committee has wasted no time in finalising plans for both the Terry Evans Cup and the the Wendoll Williams Cup, which for the first time will also include 11-aside women’s football.

Fixtures have also been planned for Virgin Gorda Recreation Ground as the BVIFA Executive continues its plans to ensure the game is taken to all parts of the territory and continues to grow not only in participation, but also popularity.

The Islanders are defending Champions from 2014 when they beat One Love 2-1 and they begin the defense of their title on opening day, April 17, 2016 at 7:00pm against Wolues on the A.O. Shirley Ground.

Other matches on the same day include the Ballstars Women against VG United Girls at 3:30pm and then the men’s teams from the same clubs will play at 5:15pm.

Action continues on Sunday April 24, 2016 over in Virgin Gorda with the Avengers Women playing the Panthers Women at 3:30pm. Old Madrid will then play the Panthers at 5:15pm and the night rounds out with Sugar Boys taking on Haitian Stars at 7:00pm.

The semi-finals are scheduled for May 1, 2016 and the Finals will take place on May 8, 2016.

The winner team will receive $1,000.00 and a trophy, whilst the Runner Up will receive $500.00 and a Trophy.

The Terry Evans Knockout Cup is named after the former BVIFA President and one of the forefathers of football in the [British] Virgin Islands.
