Member of Parliament Jermaine Figuiera gave some sponsorship assistance to the Guinness Cage Street-ball Championship. He presented several balls to tournament coordinators Three Peat Promotions on Tuesday.
Figuiera committed himself to sports development especially at the community and grass-root levels, noting that such initiatives foster social cohesion in an ethnically diverse nation as Guyana. “I will also be providing a pair of football turfs for the Most Valuable Player [MVP] of the tournament. Incentives such as this is good for improving the overall quality of event, as it awards talent and skill,” he pointed out.
