Mohamed’s Enterprise onboard with International Futsal
Long-standing football partner, Mohamed’s Enterprise, has made a donation of trophies and an undisclosed monetary sum to the GFF-ExxonMobil International Futsal Festival on Wednesday at the agency’s Lombard Street headquarters.
The donation was presented by proprietor Nazar Mohamed to Dion Inniss, Executive Committee Member of the Guyana Football Federation in the presence of Aubrey ‘Shanghai’ Major, tournament organizer representative.
Following the presentation, Mohammed said his agency has been a football partner for almost 30 years and is happy to be a sponsor of the tournament.
In expressing gratitude for the donation, Inniss said the institution is a “reliable and consistent partner” and the donation is showing “that they are investing in the youth of Guyana to ensure that they stay out of trouble and that they have something productive to do. What you’re doing is ensuring that they channel their energies in a productive way and we’re thankful for that.”
The four-day festival will kick off on December 27 with six matches that will be played between 18:00h and midnight 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. Admission to the event will be $1,000.
