Rock Auto Trans and Spare Parts Manager Yolandia Ross

At the company’s Charlotte Street location on Wednesday, the company’s General Manager Yolandia Ross not only expressed the Rock Auto’s intention to ensure the tournament has longevity, but also expressed their intention to pay it forward to communities as part of their corporate social responsibility.
“It’s a pleasure for Rock Auto Trans to be supporting our first futsal tournament, Legendary Cup. This is an event we intend to host every year, moving forward,” Ross told attendees at Wednesday afternoon’s launch.
With over $1M in prizes up for grabs, 24 teams will compete in a straight knock- out format that Referee- Organizer Wayne ‘Harry’ Griffith is testing out for the first time.
The Champions of the ‘Legendary Cup’ will clinch a $500,000 grand prize, while second place will settle for $250,000. Third place will walk away with $150,000, while fourth place pockets $100,000.
As is customary in the local Futsal arena, the tournament’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) will ride away with a motorcycle compliments of the tournament’s sponsors, while a patron will also have the chance to ride out on another motorcycle up for grabs.
