Forde, for his part, said this donation speaks of the strength of partnership to advance football development.

“This is yet another example of the tremendous impact meaningful collaboration could have on football development. I wish to use this opportunity to thank the Bartica Community, the Mayor and the Regional Chairman for their support in making the GFF Super 16 Cup fixture, which was played on December 21, 2019 successful. Our intention is to lift the profile of the BFA in this year’s Super 16 Cup, launch the 2020 Super 16 Cup at Bartica and playing the opening fixture at the Community Ground.”

The lights will be added to those recently installed by the Council to improve the lighting quality of the Bartica Community Ground, which is the premier facility in the Region.
