The Boyce & Jefford Track and Field Classic V continued to break new ground yesterday when the National Milling Company (NAMIlCO) added its brand to the annual athletics feature.
NAMILCO became a first time sponsor of the event that will happen on Saturday and Sunday at the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) Ground, Linden where over $2M in cash will be doled out to Clubs and athletes.
“We are happy to be part of this programme and we wish it a success. We know that with you gentlemen at the helm, it will be a success,” Affeez Khan, Marketing Consultant at NAMILCO, said on behalf of Managing Director, Bert Sukhai.
According to Khan, NAMILCO has decided to financially recognise the champion male and female athletes. Chairman of the Boyce/Jefford Committee, Colin Boyce, assured the company that the Fifth Edition of the meet will live up to expectations.
“I want to assure you that this Fifth Edition, with all the athletes we have competing from Guyana and overseas, will be one of the biggest athletics meet in Guyana to date,” Boyce informed.
Boyce reminded officials at NAMILCO of two of the important objectives of the meet, which he stated would bring competition to local athletes on the one hand, while showcasing local talent on the other hand. Digicel Guyana Inc. is the major sponsor of the Boyce/Jefford Classic.
