MVP Sports endorses GFF/K&S Super 16 Cup football
MVP Sports has pledged one million dollars in sponsorship to the Guyana Football Federation (GFF)/Kashif and Shanghai Super 16 Cup as part of growing corporate support for the year-end celebration of football.
Guyana Football Federation (GFF) President Wayne Forde on November 25 received the cheque from Managing Director of MVP Sports, Ian Ramdeo, at a handing over ceremony at MVP Sports’ outlet in Giftland Mall, Liliendall.
Ramdeo commended the GFF and its partners for staging the Super 16 year-end tournament.
“After the tumultuous year and a half that we’ve all had in sports and all other aspects of our daily lives, we thought it was an excellent initiative to be part of this, for footballers to get some playtime and exposure. But also for the fans to enjoy the game again in a safe way. We want to be a big part of this, not only in this particular event but going forward in 2022 as well,” Ramdeo said.
President Forde thanked Ramdeo for his continued support of football development and emphasised the importance of corporate partnerships for the future growth of sport in Guyana.
“As leaders, we all have a responsibility to improve the quality of life for our young people and when corporate Guyana takes that faithful step to climb on board and support sports in general, then we are meeting that obligation,” Forde stressed.
The GFF has organised one month of elite football over the holiday season, involving Guyana’s top male and female players and clubs from all nine GFF regional associations.
The GFF-K&S Super 16 Cup to be held over the period December 12 to January 1, the GFF Women’s Super 16 Festival 2021 to be held over the period December 11 to January 2 and the GFF-K&S Futsal Championship to be held over the period December 14 to January 8 will be played in venues across the country.
