Known widely for his philanthropy as well as his support for sports, popular businessman Brian Tiwari will celebrate his birth anniversary this year with a 9-a-side Inter-Ward football Tournament set to commence Saturday and continue Sunday, at the Den Amstel Community Centre ground starting 4:00pm.
The tournament, which is being organized by former national coach Lennox Arthur, will see twenty-four teams from all across the country compete over two days for prize monies and trophies worth in excess of $300,000 and will conclude on December 1 at the same venue.
The winning team will receive $200,000, while second, third and fourth place finishers will take home $100,000, $60,000 and $40,000 respectively.
According to Arthur, the businessman has always been forthcoming in his support for sports and has in the past repeatedly reached out to the sport of football hence his preference to allow a tournament to be played in celebration of his birthday.
Among the teams invited to participate in the tournament are Casa Coima FC out of Venezuela and GT Kanaimas originally out of Kamarang in Region 7.
Arthur added that the two teams had expressed an interest in competing in the competition and the word is that they are stacked with players with immense talent so fans could expect keen rivalry over the duration of the tournament.
