Let’s Bet Sports onboard with Mocha Village Cup Football
The Guyana Lottery Company, through its sports betting brand – Let’s Bet Sports – on Friday presented $250,000 to the oganisers of the Mocha Village Cup football tournament, which gets going on Saturday evening at the Mocha Community Centre Ground.
The 20-team tournament is being organised by Ballerz Entertainment, and will see the winners pocketing $200,000, second place $100,000, while the teams finishing third and fourth will go home with $50,000 and $25,000 respectively.
At a simple presentation held at the company’s Ogle office, Let’s Bet Sports Brand Ambassador, Rawle Toney, presented the group’s Public Relations Office, Clayton Reece, with the cheque.
According to Toney, the sponsorship shows Let’s Bet Sports’ commitment to not only giving back to the communities that support the brand, but more so helping in the development of sports.
Toney pointed out that the Sports Betting brand has been in existence for a year and it has made a solid imprint in Guyana with regards to honouring its corporate social responsibility, by supporting almost every single discipline in the country’s robust sports arena.
Meanwhile, Reece, upon thanking Let’s Bet Sports for its more than timely intervention, said his “organisation has been dedicated to youth and community development and the Mocha Village Cup in its third edition has been one of those marque events that help us to stay on track in maintaining our vision and carrying out our ongoing mission.”
“This event began in a time where competitive football was absent and we took it upon ourselves to revamp the competitive spirit by starting our own small goal tournament starting with eight teams and a little cash prize. Fast forward three years later, we have Let’s Bet Sports onboard as our main sponsor which is testament to the growth of this event,” Reece stated.
The tournament will kick off from 19:00h with ten matches slated for the opening day. Money Hunters will collide with Upsetters in the night’s first game, while Front Side will take on Young Stars and Front Side will do battle with Young Stars.
