GFF/Tiger Rentals U-13 football competition kicks off
The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) officially kicked off its Tiger Rentals Under-13 football tournament on Saturday morning at the National Training Centre at Providence where a total of 11 teams gathered for the ceremonial March Past before the tournament officially kicked off.
At the center of the March Past were head of the GFF Wayne Forde, Tiger Rentals’ Country Manager Shane Singh and GFF Technical Director Bryan Joseph.
Singh reiterated Tiger Rentals’ support for local football, especially at the grassroots level.
“We are confident that this can only bode well for Guyana and its nurturing of youth for the future. We look forward to supporting this tournament while assisting the GFF to fulfill its obligations to grow football throughout all of Guyana.”
Tiger Rentals’ commitment to the tournament surpasses G$10 million and Forde was quick to express gratitude to the corporate entity for the support.
“The GFF alone cannot organise football in Guyana,” Forde mentioned. “Partnerships like these, with the corporate community and other stakeholders, are key for the continued development of the game locally.”
Forde also expressed gratitude to the GFF staff and players who are assisting in multiple capacities to ensure the tournament’s success.
The GFF Tiger Rentals’ tournament will be played in the group round-robin stage between clubs and Academy Training Centre teams before moving forward to the knockout round.
