Massy donates referee electronic substitution board
The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) has received a referee electronic substitution board from Massy Guyana Group of Companies to enable the work of the referees in Guyana.
This presentation was made at the company’s Headquarters, Ruimveldt, Georgetown, by Deo Persaud, Chairman of Massy Guyana Group of Companies, to Dion Inniss, GFF’s Executive Committee Member and Chairman of the National Football Referees Council.
In brief remarks, Inniss noted that the company has always been receptive to the football fraternity and thus not a first-time partner. He expressed gratitude to the company for its support.
“Massy has always been a very reliable partner for football. We are happy to be using the Money Gram brand and this very important piece of equipment in football, which appears simple, contains information relevant to spectators and players alike. We’ve been without one for many months. We’re thankful for this presentation,” he said.
Persaud in response said: “We are happy to assist sports on the whole and, in this case, football in particular. We do support several sporting disciplines and bodies across Guyana. So we as a group (Massy Services and Money Gram) continue to support and give back to the community; it’s part of Massy’s corporate philosophy to give back.”
In his remarks, Head of the Refereeing Department of the GFF, Stanley Lancaster, said: “This is by far the most modernised board that we’ll use compared to the others we’ve had. We’ve had many manual boards so we welcome this. Every time we make a substitution, the brand will be visible.”
