Courts Pee Wee to kick off September 30
The future of Guyana’s football will be on display for eight weeks with the best primary schools in Georgetown and other areas in Demerara competing for the coveted Courts Pee Wee football title.
The annual tournament, organised by the Petra Organisation and sanctioned by the Guyana Football Federation, was launched on Friday at Courts’ Main Street branch, Georgetown.
Instead of the usual 24 teams, the tournament has been expanded to 32, which will include three teams each from East Coast and East Bank Demerara and two from West Demerara.
Courts Guyana Inc. has signed on to the tune of $4.1 million in an effort to test the expansion of the tournament to schools outside of Georgetown.
St. Angela’s boys are the defending champions of the tournament, after becoming the only team to win back-to-back titles in 2016 also having the distinction of being the only school to have never conceded a goal in the entire tournament.
The competition will commence on September 30 at the Banks DIH ground, Thirst Park, from 09:00h every Saturday.
Meanwhile, Finance Director of Courts Guyana Neil Boucher, Petra Organisation Director Troy Mendonca, Guyana Football Federation president Wayne Forde and Marketing Manager of Courts Guyana Pernell Cummings all agreed that the tournament provides a great avenue for young talents to be showcased, thereby helping to build the foundation for Guyana’s football future.
