Addis Ababa City Cup games to be televised live

The 2018 Addis Ababa City Cup brings together eight teams including Quarry United from Nigeria. With a new Federation President, Engineer Haileyesus Fisseha in the helm and the games on live TV, this year’s City Cup promises to be exciting.
Even though Saint George has not done as well as hoped, the Addis Ababa Football Federation had done a good job of organizing the annual event. Winning the good will of the Gondar based side Fasil has saved the tournament. Ethio Electric, Mekelakya and Ethiopia Bunna are the Capital’s flag bearers while Premier League defending champions Jimma AbaJifar, Adama, Wolayta Dicha and Fasil are invited guests.
The major coup is inviting a Nigerian side, Quarry United to take part in the annual tournament and the signed and sealed contract agreement with Walta Television to transmit some games live including the opening and closing matches.
Ethiopia Bunna, Mekelakeya, Electric and Adama are in group one with Ethiopia Bunna versus Mekelakya and Electric against Adama the opening matches. The second group brings together Quarry United, Amahara region representative Fasil, last season’s knock out cup winners Wolayta Dicha and Jimma AbaJifar. Who, despite winning the championship is going through a rebuild.
According to the Federation’s news release the participants are to share forty percent of the money collected in the tournament with 15% going to the winners ten percent for the runner ups and the remaining to be divided at seven percent each.
