In the words of David “Big Hair” Brisacher, co-organizer of the Maestro Marley Cup, “It is an honor to be partners with Ky-Mani Marley on this amazing event.  The Maestro Marley Cup is more than a concert with a soccer tournament. It is an uplifting experience that brings together the community and raises money for a great cause.”

Attendees can secure their early bird tickets for $40 each until July 31, 2023. 

Advanced general admission tickets are priced at $50 and VIP tickets at $150, inclusive of private bar access, preferred viewing area, and a separate VIP entry gate. 

VIP table and bottle service for four people are also on offer. Participation in the 6 vs. 6-soccer tournament requires a fee of $500 for a team of eight players and includes concert tickets.

Beyond entertainment: The Maestro Marley Cup’s mission

The Maestro Marley Cup was initiated by Ky-Mani Marley and Big Hair Dave from The Dubplates, with the aim of supporting the Love Over All Foundation (LOAF). 

This foundation strives to uplift communities through sports and music, and its flagship project, Falmouth United, provides a safe environment for Jamaican youth, encouraging them to stay off the streets and invest in their future.

Proceeds from the event also contribute to the Hollywood Police Athletic League, a youth program focusing on crime and drug use prevention. Through discipline, self-esteem building, and the promotion of positive values, the program provides a constructive impact on local youth. Online donations of $5 can be made to assist underprivileged children in Hollywood, Florida, and Falmouth, Jamaica.
