The sixteen clubs participating in the inaugural Stag Super XV1 Football Tournament
which is being played among three of the affiliates of the Guyana Football Federation each received a cheque for $50,000 each compliments of main sponsor, Ansa McAl.
Handing over the monies to each club, Ansa McAl Public Relations Officer Ms. Darshanie Yussuf stated that the organizing football associations, Berbice, East Demerara and East Bank made the request as part of the sponsorship package to assist the clubs in their preparations for the tournament.
“We had no hesitation in acquiescing to the request since we understand what it takes to get one’s self in order for a high level competition. We at Ansa McAl have been partnering and sponsoring some of the associations’ tournaments over the years and we are aware of what it takes to prepare.”
Yussuf also mentioned that they are pleased to be supporting the development of the game in the three areas and that the tournament which kicked off on Sunday last at the #5 ground West Coast Berbice has brought together the best clubs from the three associations.
The associations collectively expressed gratitude to Yussuf and Ansa McAl for their largesse, noting that every dollar will be spent for its intended purpose.
Already advancing to the quarter finals are two Berbice clubs, Monedderlust and Cougars who defeated Golden Stars and Soesdyke Falcons by 2-1 and 3-0 margins respectively.
The quest for more quarter final berths will continue tomorrow when action will switch to the Grove Playfield, East Bank Demerara. Agricola Red Triangle will come up against Ann’s Grove in opening play at 18:00hrs with the main event pitting Grove Hi Tech and BV Triumph United.
The winner of the tournament will be rewarded with a cheque for 1.5 million dollars; a second prize of $500,000 is at stake, while the winner of the third place game will collect $300,000 and the loser, $100,000.
