GBFA President Rollin Tappin in an invited comment said that the day’s activities which included the march pass were satisfying also with crowd support.
“We are very optimistic that with a consistent diet of beach soccer, Guyanese fans will gravitate towards this sport.”
Tappin noted that it is the aim of the association to see Guyana qualify for a major international tournament pointing out that the nation needs to take its rightful place at the world level.
“We expect that at the end of this league players would have attained the necessary skill sets in this format of football and by extension improve Guyana’s capacity and ability to really command a place at the highest level in world soccer.”
Matches would be played at two venues and will continue this Sunday at the Kuru Kururu ground, Linden Soesdyke Highway with five more matches.
