MVP Sports throws support behind ‘Skills for Cash’ football
This weekend’s ‘Skills for Cash’ 7-a-side Football tournament has received more corporate support, with MVP Sports committing to the third place cash prize and accompanying trophy.
Co-organisers of the tournament, Lynton Luke and Virgil Watts were on hand to receive the sponsorship from Ian Ramdeo, the proprietor of MVP Sports at its Giftland Mall branch.
Ramdeo said the entity, which has another location in the Amazonia Mall, is pleased to support grassroot sport activities. Ramdeo wished the organisers well in their endeavours.
Both Luke and Watts expressed appreciation for the support, noting it will go a far way in making the event a success.
Luke and Watts are coordinating the competition through Cool Crew Promotion and Virgil Watts Construction. The tournament is in its third edition, having missed the last two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
