THE Tyrone Premier team’s game at this year SuperCupNI competition is to be televised.

The game against Beijing Morning Star was to take place at Broughshane at 5pm on Monday, July 24.


But, following a request by the BBC, the U17 clash has been switched to the Ballymena Showgrounds.

The switch was revealed last week as the Red Hand county offcially launched its bid at a reception hosted by the Mid Ulster Council in Dungannon.

The reception was attended by Council chair Kim Ashton and Major of the Derry City and Strabane District Council, Maoliosa McHugh, who during their addresses wished the teams all the best for this year’s tournament.

County chairman Francie Devine responded and said the excitement was now building with just two weeks to go until kick-off.

“From now on it gets very real for the players,” he said.
