KFC, Ansa McAl on the Golden Jaguars bandwagon
Corporate Guyana has come onboard and partnered with the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) to ensure Guyana’s senior Men’s national team, the Golden Jaguars, is well prepared for the crucial match against Belize on Saturday (March 23).
Ansa McAl Trading has acquired the ‘Beer rights’ for the match and will have bars at the match venue and KFC has purchased 200 tickets, which will afford patrons an opportunity to roar for the Golden Jaguars.
They join Sueria Manufacturing Inc., whose Chief Executive Officer Frank Sanichara on Monday donated 100 cases of Aqua Pur Water to the players and officials to aid their training and match day activities.
Following the presentation done at the company’s East Coast Headquarters, Errol Nelson, Business Unit Head of Ansa McAl’s Non-Alcoholic Beverage Division, acknowledged the fruitful relationship with the GFF and urged fans to support the match.
“Ansa McAl has had a long and fruitful relationship with the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) over the years. We are pleased to be once again onboard with GFF to ensure the successful hosting of Concacaf Nations League games in Guyana. I would like wish our Golden Jaguars success in their encounter with Belize on the 23rd of March. Additionally, I would want to urge all the supporters and fans of football to come out and support the game, the Ansa McAl bars and help us to make the event a grand success.”
In response, GFF’s Technical Director, Ian Greenwood, thanked the company for the partnership and emphasised the importance of corporate support for the match.
“The GFF expresses gratitude to the Ansa McAl Group for their timely partnership. A match of this magnitude requires all hands on board and Ansa McAl must be acknowledged for recognising this and being an enduring partner. This is the Golden Jaguars’ chance to create history for all Guyana and partnerships such as that of Ansa McAl’s ensure that the significance of the event is appreciated by all.”
KFC Guyana too has come on board to ensure that school-aged children have an opportunity to view the match against Belize.
Following a presentation at the agency’s Vlissengen Road outlet, Marketing Assistant Carina Westford expressed her company’s support for the Golden Jaguars.
“KFC Guyana fully supports the GFF and its phenomenal match coming up – our own Golden Jaguars vs Belize. We encourage all to come and support our home team because they are amazing. The public can get their tickets at our Regent Street and Mandela Avenue branches. We believe in the importance of sports and its relationship to the development of youth. It is a great alternative to activities, which are not beneficial to the development of youth such as crime so we fully support sports and, in this instance, football in our country.”
