KFC funds $1M first prize for One Guyana Futsal
KFC Guyana has continued their tangible investment in sport by now funding the G$1M first prize for the One Guyana Futsal tournament, coordinated by the Kashif and Shanghai Organisation.
The tournament is set to conclude on May 20 with what is expected to be a titanic final between Sparta Boss and Bent Street at the National Park.
Co-Director, Kashif Muhammad thanked KFC Guyana for their continued support and said all systems are in place for the grand finale.
Additionally, Muhammad indicated that despite the rainy weather, they are planning ahead with their event on the National Park Tarmac.
Marketing Manager for KFC Guyana, Pamella Manasseh, expressed that as a company they are keen to see the country’s development and sport forms a vital component and as such they will continue their support.
Meanwhile, in the semi-finals, Sparta Boss overcame a determined Back Circle side by a scoreline of 6-4, thanks to a brace from Ryan Hackett (21’, 39’) and Sheldon Shepherd (5’, 33’), as well as goals from Jermaine Junor (29’) and Curtez Kellman (31’).
Meanwhile, Bent Street showed why they are considered favourites to win the tournament with a dominant 9-2 victory over California Square.
Job Caesar’s hat-trick (22’, 33’, 39’), coupled with a double from Adrian Aaron (21’, 22) and goals from Daniel Wilson (19), Sheldon Holder (21’), Pernell Shultz (6’) and Colin Nelson (16’) proved too much for California Square to handle.
Sparta Boss will rely on the attacking prowess of Hackett and Shepherd, while Bent Street will look to Caesar and Aaron for inspiration.
Speaking ahead of the final, Jeremy Garrett, who acts as Management of the Sparta team, assured their supporters that “no doubt I believe that the guys can pull it off and it’s going to be an entertaining one. Looking for the victory in our finals, no doubt.”
For Adrian Aaron, Bent Street is talented enough to match Sparta Boss’ attack and will resolutely defend their goal. Both teams are anticipating fireworks when the two sides collide.
The second-place team will receive a prize of $500,000, while the third and fourth-place finishers will take home $200,000 and $100,000, respectively.
