-play resumes this evening at 19:00hrs
When play in the 4th Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ West Demerara/East Bank Demerara Zone resumes this evening at the Pouderoyen Tarmac, teams such as Agricola, ESPN, Front Line Ballers and Ballers Empire will be under pressure to stay in contention to advance to the knockout phase.
These four teams lost their opening encounters when the tournament kicked off last Friday and with only the top two teams qualifying to the next round, they will need to win their respective engagements tonight to stand a chance of making it to the business end.
A number of teams will be appearing in their first fixture and will be aiming to commence their quest for top honours on a positive note.
Among those teams are Police ‘A’, Harmony Warriors, Gold Getters, Parfaite Hard Ball, Cayenne Massive, Gas Team, Hustlers and Brothers United.
Upon the conclusion of the group round, the top two finishers will advance to the knockout round.
Winner of the tournament will take away $400,000 and the championship trophy, while the runner-up will be given $200,000 and a trophy.
The third and fourth placed finishers will receive $150,000 and $100,000 respectively along with trophies.
Meanwhile, the other playing dates are February 2nd, 7th, 9th, 13th and 17th.
