The Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Georgetown Championship, group stage, will officially commence on July 19th at the National Cultural Center Tarmac. 16 teams will be divided into four groups of four following the conclusion of the elimination round which lasted for the duration of two nights.
According to an official release from tournament coordinator Three Peat Promotions, “The impending group stage might be the most competitive in the history of the event as several teams have already displayed their championship quality and aspirations during the elimination round.”
The release further said, “We envisage a highly competitive group round where any of the teams can progress to the quarterfinal stage due to their quality. The fans will certainly be treated to pulsating action.”
The round robin stage will also be hosted on July 20th and 26th. The top two finishers from each section will advance to the quarterfinal and subsequent semi-final round.
Winner of the event will collect $500,000 and the championship trophy, with the second, third and fourth place finishers copping $300,000, $200,000 and $100,000 respectively and the corresponding trophy.
They will also automatically seal a place in the National Championship in August.
To date Beacons [Bartica Champion], Melanie-B [East Coast Demerara winner], Brothers United [West Demerara/East Bank Demerara winner], Trafalgar [Berbice champion] and High Rollers [Linden champion] are the teams to have secured automatic berths to the national championship.
