Beverage giants Banks DIH through its popular GT Beer brand gave approval to a sponsorship request made by Organisers of the 2nd Annual Limacol Round Robin / Knockout Football Competition, during a simple ceremony
that was conducted yesterday in the Company’s Boardroom, at Thirst Park.
Among those present at the occasion were GT Beer Brand Manager Geoff Clement, Communications Manager Troy Peters, Petra Organisation officials Troy Mendonca and Mark Alleyne and Outdoor Events Manager Mortimer Stewart.
The sponsorship means that GT Beer will be the official drink of the competition and football fans are being urged to support the brand, but drink responsibly. Mendonca speaking at the ceremony expressed gratitude on behalf of Petra Organisation for the consideration and subsequent support of Banks DIH, before acknowledging the long relationship that exists between the two entities.
He added that the Company’s presence in the competition is a good signal for the sport and hoped that the strong friendship between them continues to grow way into the future. He closed by thanking the Management and Staff of Banks DIH for its support of the Limacol Football Tournament.
Meanwhile, Peters in his remarks also echoed the sentiments expressed by Mendonca in relation to the strong friendship that exists between the two entities, adding that the Company’s support for football is well documented and unrivalled.
He informed that they’ve supported the sport throughout the length and breadth of this country and their presence in the tournament is just another example of the Company’s strong commitment towards the development of sport.
He said the Company was heartened by the fact that a lot of players will benefit from the staging of the competition, while various communities will also profit. Peters added that they were looking forward to sixteen days of exciting action and wished the Organisers and teams the best of luck.
Meanwhile, the winner of each group will receive $100,000, while the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed finishers will be given $50,000, $30,000 and $20,000 each. The winner of the competition will take home $500,000 and a trophy, while the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed teams will collect $250,000, $125,000 and $75,000 respectively and trophies.
