Press Release by the Guyana Football Federation President Wayne Forde

The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) wishes to congratulate the Government of Guyana for the historic budgetary allocation to sport.

This I believe is a clear and convincing signal of the Government’s determined intentions to invest in the lives of our young people.

I would like commend Minister Charles Ramson and his team for the thoughtful work that resulted in this unprecedented and historic investment in sport.

The GFF has built a very sturdy partnership with the Ministry of Culture Youth and Sport, which has enable us to align our strategic priorities for the growth and development of football.

These priorities are:
1. Infrastructure development- (the upgrade of community grounds)
2. Competition – the staging of established competitions and the creation of new grassroots community tournaments
3. School football – the establishment of a nationwide Primary and Secondary school football programme
4. Capacity building – investing in Coaching education, football administration, officiating and Governance.

I look forward to working with the Honourable Minister in the coming months as he facilitates government’s continued assistance to realise our common goals in 2022.
