GFF begins process to reintegrate Pele, GFC into association football
The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) has commenced efforts to reintegrate Pele Football Club and the Georgetown Football Club into the activities of their Association, the Georgetown Football Association (GFA), following their relegation from the Elite League.
This will result in the named clubs becoming members of the GFA and participating in the activities of the same. The next major activities of the Association are the GFF-Pele Alumni Frank Watson National Under-15 Tournament and the GFF-NAMILCO Thunderbolt Flour Power National Under-17 Tournament, the latter scheduled to begin this weekend.
“These competitions will afford the youth players from the respective clubs the much needed opportunity to be engaged in active football. Further, the senior team will be allowed to participate in the Association’s tournaments and compete to regain their position in the elite league,” the GFF said in a statement on Wednesday (June 14).
It added, “The GFF had taken the decision to relegate both clubs in accordance with Article; 13,1a and 13,1c of the Constitution of the Guyana Football Federation following their withdrawal from the senior league.”
