The fourth edition of the St George's College Invitational Tournament begins today with a pair of matches at the hosts' North Street-located Winchester Park football field.

At 2:00 pm, daCosta Cup schoolboy outfits St Elizabeth Technical and Titchfield High square off, while in the second match of the double-header, St George's College go up against the Jamaica Under-17 male team at 4 o' clock.

Tomorrow, Titchfield oppose the national youth team at 2:00 pm, while in the late afternoon encounter, St George's entertain St Elizabeth Technical.

The match-ups were determined by a draw which was completed on Thursday.

The preseason tournament offers valuable preparation for the schoolboy teams ahead of the September start of the football season. The Young Reggae Boyz are seeking practice before journeying to Guadeloupe for the Caribbean Football Union qualifiers later this month.

The team with the most number of points wins the Western Sports Trophy and will take home $75,000 courtesy of Micro Labs Limited. The team that finishes second will be awarded $50,000.

If teams are tied on points, the first tie-breaker will be head-to-head result, followed by goal-difference.

The previous winners of the tournament are Wolmer's Boys' in 2011, Jamaica College (2012) and St George's College (2013).
