Digicel (Guyana) has collaborated with the Guyana Floodlight Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA) as part of its Triple Treat in the county of Essequibo on March 20.
According to Retail Sales Manager of Digicel, Richard Das, the softball competition will form part of a day of activities geared to provide wholesome entertainment to the Essequibo Coast.
The Triple Treat will see a fusion of softball cricket, a duck curry competition and a live stage show. Prior to the day of the final, Das explained that there will be four weeks of preliminary matches, which will be coordinated by the GFSCA.
“The competition promises to be a lot of fun and a lot of excitement for the Essequibo Coast. Its four weeks of preliminary matches and the final will incorporate into the Triple Treat,” Das said at the launch on Friday.
The registration of teams will take place during the period January 25 to February 13, while the first round of preliminary games will take place on February 21. Preliminary matches will be played at various grounds along the Essequibo Coast, while the final will take place at the Anna Regina Community Centre ground.
“We want to encourage everyone to come out to the matches: the spectators, the players. Digicel likes to give back to the community, and there will be giveaways, phone deals and sales opportunity for everyone,” Das stated.
President of the GFSCA, Ramchand Ragbeer, said the association has embraced the concept, noting that the members are eagerly looking forward to working with ‘The Bigger, Better Network.’ He pointed out that the competition will utilise the GFSCA balls that are usually reserved for international tournaments.
Ragbeer sounded a warning to the teams to stick to their original list of players submitted prior to the start of the tournament, noting that changes and/or the drafting in of players from other teams that were previously knocked out would not be tolerated.
Teams desirous of competing in the inaugural competition are required to make contact with the GFSCA coordinator in Essequibo, Khalid Baksh.
The 10/10 softball cricket competition will see teams vying for over $600,000 in cash and prizes. Teams will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and there will be no fee required to enter the competition.
