Preparations to guarantee that there are no glitches during the hosting of the Guyana leg of the 2010 CFU Women’s World Cup qualifying Phase have intensified and should be completed in time for the successful staging of the competition.
This is the word from Acting President of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) and Chairman of the World Cup Committee Franklin Wilson, who presided over a Meeting held at the entity’s Headquarters on Thursday evening.
Also present at the gathering were Committee Secretary Kirk Douglas and members Vannesa Dickenson, Rawle Welch and Aubrey Henry.
According to Wilson most of the requirements on the checklist have been confirmed and certified and he anticipates no hiccups when the competition commences next Wednesday.
Wilson disclosed that overseas-based players chosen to represent Guyana in the tournament will arrive tomorrow morning and will be housed at the Tropical View Hotel, while the other countries slated to participate in the tournament Suriname and St. Vincent & the Grenadines are expected to arrive on Monday and Tuesday respectively.
Meanwhile, Wilson stated that details pertaining to Cuba’s scheduled arrival are still sketchy and he is awaiting further information from President of the GFF Colin Klass.
The venues for training sessions have been identified and they are GFC, GCC, Camptown, GDF and Police Sports Club.
The sale of tickets will be done on the day of the match at a cost of $500, while children Under-12 will be allowed free entry.
The GFF is encouraging all patriotic Guyanese and lovers of the sport to come out and support the Lady Jaguars as they attempt to proceed further into the competition.
