Bartica benefits from GFF’s financial assistance programme
The Bartica Football Association (BFA) is the latest Association to benefit from the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Members Financial Assistance Programme (MFAP).
The Programme is designed to assist Regional Member Associations of the GFF in a number of areas, including administration and operations, equipment and materials, competitions and technical development, and infrastructure.
According to the BFA official Facebook page, the Association has benefitted from monthly financial assistance for administrative purposes, home-and-away uniform kits for male and female seniors and juniors, equipment for the running of its Academy Training Centre, balls and equipment for the promotion of association competitions, and financial assistance for the running of leagues in three age categories in 2019.
The release added, “The association is assured of further assistance (financial and otherwise) for its operations in the future, once the return-to-play is realised, following the lifting of the COVID-19 restrictions.”
“The BFA has also engaged the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission with the interest of acquiring lands for the establishment of an international-standard football facility within its jurisdiction…for which funding can also be provided by the GFF, through the MFAP.”
The MFAP is derived from the FIFA/CONCACAF Forward Project, of which Guyana is a beneficiary.
