Digicel is again the major sponsor of the sixth edition of the Boyce and Jefford Track and Field Classic, maintaining their relationship with the event from its inception in 2010, after affirming its support yesterday in a
simple handover ceremony.
Events and Sponsorship Manager, Gavin Hope outlined Digicel’s reason to sponsor the event for yet another year. The sixth edition of Guyana’s most prestigious athletics meet is set August 15-16 at the Mackenzie Sports Club Ground, Linden.
“We have seen the continuous growth every year, we have seen the benefits hence the reason we will continue to support the meet. We have followed the progress of the event. The Management has always made all efforts to bring a quality meet,” Hope said, adding that the Organisers have grown from an administrative perspective.
“This could potentially be the biggest track and field meet in Guyana and we want them to continue to do more and do better,” Hope added, before congratulating the Organisers for their persistence.
Hope, who was a former national athlete, also encouraged athletes to continue working hard because of the opportunities that will be available owed to the synthetic facility at Leonora as well as meets such as the Boyce and Jefford Classic.
Chairman of the Boyce and Jefford Classic Committee, Colin Boyce thanked Digicel for their continued support.
“I am happy that they indeed accepted the initiative since our first year and in our sixth edition for the first time we have Bahamas and Jamaica coming. We hope to continue the development of our athletes and sports in general,” Boyce said.
Guyana’s top clubs will be matching strides for the top prize of $600,000; the second place team will pocket $400,000 while third and fourth places get $250,000 and $150,000 respectively. The athletes finishing first to third in six international events will be receiving US $250, US $150 and US $100 respectively.
