Football enthusiasts, family and friends are anticipated to converge at the Den Amstel Community Centre ground today to witness opening day action in the Brian Tiwari 60th Birth Anniversary Football Tournament which kicks off with six exciting encounters.
The charismatic businessman has consented to provide funding for the hosting of the two-day competition which will commemorate the significant milestone and according to Organiser Lennox Arthur, teams from West Demerara, East Coast Demerara, Georgetown and East Bank Demerara have agreed to be part of the event.
Tiwari, the owner of many successful business ventures under BK International Inc. trademark, lists investments in the infrastructural and aviation sectors as among the vast business enterprise he has built, but is also known for his generosity towards sport.
Arthur added that Tiwari is extremely popular on the West Demerara and he expects a large outpouring of spectators to come out in support for the tournament to celebrate Tiwari’s birthday.
He further stated that the businessman has been a reliable supporter of sports over the years, responding favourably to request for sponsorship from Organisers and individuals respectively and he believes a tournament to recognize his contribution to sports is an appropriate gesture to honour the special occasion.
Among the teams listed to participate in the tournament are: Sophia, Wales, Plaisance, Lima Dam, Crane, Timehri, Zeelugt, Kuru Kururu, Soesdyke, Den Amstel and Bagotsville.
The Organisers have scheduled six matches for opening with hosts Den Amstel slated to appear in the feature clash against Bagotsville.
