Fireside Grill N Chill sponsors Andrew Ifill championship trophy
- Trophy Stall continues support of Basketball
The second Rawle Toney 3X3 Classic Basketball tournament, which has been sanctioned by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), garnered timely support from popular Garnett Street food establishment, Fireside Grill N Chill, this weekend.
The anticipated championship bounced off last night and will conclude tonight at the Burnham Hard Court on Middle and Carmichael Streets. The tournament will see over G$500,000 in cash and prizes being doled out to the top performers, and Fireside Grill N Chill, which has been a long-term supporter of sport in Guyana has sponsored the Andrew Ifill Championship trophy.
Once again, Toney has decided to pay tribute to the late National Basketball player Ifill, who passed away in 2019.
Ifill is considered as one of the best forwards Guyana has ever produced, and when he migrated to the Twin Island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago some 14 years ago, he became one of the best players to grace the courts on the Island.
Also joining the list of supporters is Trophy Stall, whose proprietor, Ramesh Sunich, was pleased to contribute the MVP trophy of the event.
In an invited comment, organiser of the event, Rawle Toney, explained that many teams have requested to play in the event and it was a tough task to select the final 16 teams that will be on show this weekend and a keen competition is expected throughout the two days of play that will see around 30 matches being contested.
The event will be live-streamed on Youtube and Facebook along with real time updates throughout the weekend.
The tournament is sponsored by Team Mohamed’s, Modern Building Solutions, Medicine Chest, Mackeson, Guyana Lottery Company, E-Networks, Trophy Stall, Hennessy, FireSide Grill, Bush Cook, Stuff, MVP Sports, FK Sports, Shi Oil, Brother’s Security, The Muse Bar, Pressy’s Gift Shop, Cigar and Cognac, and 94.1 Boom FM.
