KOHIMA, Sep 4 (NEPS): The much awaited Kohima Press Club (KPC) 11 vs Classic Club 11 for the prestigious Challenger Cup 2014 will formally kick-off amidst expectedly capacity soccer fans here at historic Kohima Local Ground on September 5 at 3:00 PM.
The Classic Club Challenger Cup has been designed to play between the KPC 11 and the Classic Club 11 and has been successfully going on for the last nearly one decade. Over the years, the Challenger Cup of the Classic Club has become so popular that it has become a trade mark today as “KPC-Classic Club Challenger Cup.”
This annual feature between the KPC and Classic Club has also brought rapport between the press fraternity and the members of the Club (Classic Club) which have also been rendering humanitarian services as well as various services to the State capital Kohima at their own cost.
One of the interesting features that will have a special attraction in tomorrow’s KPC 11 vs Classic Club 11 at Kohima Local Ground will be Nagaland Assembly Speaker Chositsuh Sazo’s joining the match. Being a member of Classic Club, the Speaker will be part of the Classic Club team throwing unprecedented challenge against the KPC 11.
Mention may be made that in the last two consecutive Challenger Cups, KPC had defeated Classic Club team. “I think KPC could defeat Classic Club because I was not there in the team (Classic Club),” Sazo used to comment on lighter vein. “But KPC is not taking his comments lightly,” some senior KPC members replied saying they have to put up strong fight against the Classic Club team and make it a “hat trick.”
