In a short presentation ceremony following the championship match, the Strykers were awarded the championship trophy and the Rovers were awarded the tournament’s silver trophy. The Strykers’ Marlon Evans was recognized as the championship match MVP. Representatives from GFA and Jamaican Grill were on hand to distribute awards.
