Commenting on his team's second consecutive final appearance and third overall, Exed's Head Coach Roy Calvert said:

Meanwhile, his counterpart Linval Green said:

“It is a joy to see how far both teams have come. This final is more than just winning, it's about a clash of talents created by a very good competition. I wish both teams best of luck on the day and I am looking forward to a clean, safe and exciting final. ”
