Since its inception, this tournament has grown from strength to strength and now is in its 11th year for senior teams and its third year for youths. The management of the GFSCA has started preparation with several practice sessions at New Trafford, Dennis Street, Georgetown.
As the weather permits, more sessions will be held at grounds in and around Georgetown. Two T20 practice matches will be held on December 17, 2019 vs Berbice powerhouse youth team Blairmont. Several more should be played in Georgetown prior to this, weather permitting.
