Auto Fashion, Trophy Stall support International Futsal Festival
Two more corporate partners have committed to the successful execution of the GFF-ExxonMobil International Futsal Festival scheduled for December 27-30 at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
Trophy Stall and Auto Fashion have each donated the championship trophy and medals respectively for the eight participating teams in this inaugural tournament.
Long-time sports supporter and proprietor of Trophy Stall, Ramesh Sunich, has expressed his pleasure to collaborate with the tournament and committed his continuous support of sports in Guyana.
Rupie Shewjattan, Proprietor of Auto Fashion, said he is pleased to support the initiative as his business has been a sponsor of football for a number of years and “we like to support sports especially for a good reason.”
He has indicated his business’ interest in continuing the sponsorship next year. The four-day festival will kick off with six matches that will be played between 18:00h and 00:00hrs with each match being played on the hour culminating with the final match at 23:00h.
The teams, which include Morvant Caledonia United from Trinidad and Tobago, ZV All-Stars from Suriname, and a São Paulo selection from Brazil, will be placed in two groups. The locally participating teams are an East Coast All-Stars, Linden All-Stars, Georgetown All-Stars and West Demerara All-Stars.
The winning team will pocket $1.2 million, while the losing finalist will receive half that amount. Third and fourth-placed finishers will pocket $300,000 and $100,000 respectively.
