Mohamed’s Enterprise sponsors $1M first prize for the Kares One Guyana T10
Mohamed’s Enterprise has continued its overwhelming support for sport in Guyana by funding the $1M first prize for the inaugural Kares One Guyana T10, set for July 29 and 30 in Georgetown.
The benevolence was extended to cover the transportation cost of the Moruca team which will compete in the tournament.
Managing Director at Mohamed’s Enterprise, Azruddin Mohamed, indicated he was happy to be part of the tournament that he believes will spark immense grassroot involvement in cricket.
The organising group – FL Sport – expressed immense thanks to Mohamed for his support, noting that Mohamed was one of the first to quickly pledge tangible support to give youths a massive platform to express their talent.
President Dr. Irfaan Ali, the tournament’s patron, recently recommitted his support for the game, noting it is an event that will bring many people together from varying communities under the ‘One Guyana’ banner.
The tournament features 32 teams with representation from all regions except Region Nine.
Several active and former national players will feature for their teams over the two-day extravaganza.
Preliminary matches will be staged at the Police Sports Club, the Guyana Defence Force, Queen’s College Ground, YMCA, and Transport Sports Club, while the finals will be held at the Everest Cricket Ground on July 30.
The first-ever champions will pocket G$1M, while the losing finalist will collect G$300,000.
The two losing semi-finalists will walk away with G$100,000 each. There will also be prizes for outstanding individual performances.
Additionally, there will be a celebrity match before the championship match where the winning side will be rewarded G$200,000, which will be donated to a charity of their choice.
Admission is free to all venues.
