PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL Jamaica Ltd (PFJL) promises a booming start to the 2022-23 Jamaica Premier League (JPL) season as powerhouse rivals Waterhouse and Arnett Gardens will clash in an event dubbed the ‘BOOM El Clasico’.

The BOOM El Clasico will pit the JPL giants over two jam-packed legs of football slated for October 10 and 17 at the Waterhouse stadium and at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.

Before the colossal clashes, there will be a game including celebrities as a nod to the communities that have produced some musical giants over the decades.

Arnett Gardens and Waterhouse’s longstanding rivalry attracts the largest spectator following in local football.

Title sponsors BOOM Energy Drink have sweetened the pot with a winner-takes-all prize payout of $1 million.
