Sales and Marketing Manager of Demerara Oxygen Company Ltd. (DOCOL) Gopienauth Sowdajar speaking with this newspaper shortly after presenting a cheque for an undisclosed sum to Co-ordinator of the Inter-Market Indoor Futsal Tournament O’Neil Durant, acknowledged that the sport of football is fast becoming a ‘big’ sport in Guyana.
Sowdajar, who conducted the presentation at the Company’s Head Office in Eccles, said football over the recent past has been evolving as a major sport in Guyana and pointed to the success of the Kashif & Shanghai annual extravaganza, the increasing successful exploits of the ‘Golden Jaguars’ as examples of the game’s positive move up the sports index.
Commenting on the Inter-Market Competition, Sowdajar noted that the event will be able to capture the common folks, adding that by doing so it provides an opportunity for the participants and supporters to build a stronger relationship not only in the sports realm, but on the business front as well.
According to the DOCOL Manager, the aim in addition to creating friendly rivalry could also be used to form stronger chains between the participants and suppliers and that could then present them with the opportunity to discuss the possibility of obtaining better prices for their commodities that may perhaps benefit the consumer.
Durant in his response thanked DOCOL for supporting the event and promised to deliver a quality competition that will meet the satisfaction of the entity.
The competition will see some twenty (20) markets all across the country compete at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
