The Scissorhands Kid

A few days left for a new start of summer championship of soccer JPS 2015 of the first national division. The teams reveal to fans their new skins, uniforms for those who will fight to the death in this tournament.

Players come and go: contracting for one team to the other, enemies between player and club, contract renewals, Argentina, Uruguay; foreigners arrive to put the sauce that can spice up the football that became a long time ago, more predictable than seeing the Scissorhands Kid playing "Rock Paper Scissors".

Saprissa: The opponent to beat from January 18 that kickoff is given. Jeaustin Campos and his men arrive with their chest out after winning two championships in a row. They showed in their last title that having a perfect season is not always necessary but to take out the claw, talent and order. Playing intelligently in the final stages is when titles are achieved, something the Macho Ramirez still has to be rumbling about after achieving 53 points in the standings but removed from the final party. It is well known that the experience of Oscar Ramirez, one of the most successful national football coaches, will you put more excitment to the tournament. The Macho knows that he has to beat his sworn rival, the one that caused him to miss the final, so he wont  become an uncomfortable thing in the liguista bench.

"This year it is possible" an eternally optimistic approache from the foggy's, with the arrival of new players, a new wind with a new coach Enrique Meza Junior, they will cut this tournment that streak that caught them many years ago already.

The ones of the province of the flowers, Herediano, were left with a bad taste in the final played against the tibaseños. With a new coachin very good condition, Mauricio Wright wants to bring Heredia to a new championship.

The cards are already launched for "small" teams too, where they will try their resources (which plays more the passion they put into the field than what is available), to make a most entertaining event for lovers of soccer, a summer tournament more exciting and not so mediocre. Date to date we will know who will be invited to fight against the big four.

So well, this weekend the kickoff will start with two games at two in the afternoon of Sunday January 18: UCR receives Perez Zeledon in its Estadio Ecologico, while Uruguay will face in the Labrador to Cartago.

The derby of the province of Heredia will live in Week 1 from four in the afternoon at the Estadio Eladio Rosabal Cordero, when Belen FC, local on this occasion, receives Herediano.

Saprissa vs Ace Puma will closed the day at 5 pm at the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium. Both teams reached an agreement to vary the homefield dates 1 and 12 of the contest, giving the responsibility to the national champion at home to defense the title.
