Quarterfinal action in this year’s Mayor’s Cup football championship will commence tomorrow evening at the Victoria Ground with a double header starting from 6:00pm as teams intensify their hunt for the Aruwai Resort first and Ansa McAl second prizes among others on offer.
The opening game is not a quarterfinal encounter, however, the winner secures a place in the quarterfinal round.
That opening contest pits Eagles of Linden coming up against Uitvlugt of the West Demerara.
The night cap set to start from 8:00pm will see Ann’s Grove of the East Coast Demerara taking on Cougars in the first quarterfinal of the tournament. Led by midfielder Andre Murray, Ann’s Grove are expected to go for the jugular as they plan to claim that place on offer. Cougars on the other hand, as their name suggest, will come out fighting, tooth and nails, and a keenly contested match is in the making.
The teams are battling for the top prize of $700,000 and a trophy donated by Aruwai Resort. The second place team pockets $300,000 and the Ansa McAl trophy, while the third place team carts off $200,000 and the John Fernandes trophy.
The fourth place finishers will receive $100,000 and the Ministry of State trophy. Ricks and Sari has also donated hampers which will go to the winning team, while tournament’s top goal scorer will get a three piece suite compliments of AH&L Kissoon Furniture Store.
Top Brandz of Broad and High Streets, distributors of Interstate vehicle batteries, is among the key sponsors on board assisting the tournament. Aruwai Resort of the Essequibo River is also another main supporter of this year’s event and Coordinator Lennox Arthur has expressed thanks to all the sponsors.
Apart from Aruwai Resort and Top Brandz, among others on board include: Ansa McAl, Minister of State Joe Harmon and his ministry, John Fernandes, Ricks and Sari and AH&L Kissoon.
Due certain unforeseen circumstances, the organisers had to change the scheduled matches fixed for today at the GFC ground.
