GFF M-FAP donates gear to 11 villages in Upper Maz Games
Club Managers from the 11 villages participating in the Upper Mazaruni District Games in Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) this week received cones, balls, bibs and hurdles from the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) through its groundbreaking Members Financial Assistance Programme (M-FAP).
Over the last two months, GFF has donated millions of dollars and football gear to its Regional Associations, clubs and villages as part of its drive to ensure the continued promotion of football through successful August tournaments across Guyana.
On August 15, managers representing Kako, Wax Creek, Phillipai, Imbaimadai, Jawalla, Kamarang, Waramadong, Paruima, Kaikan, Araw and San Juan villages received their gear to be used during training sessions to better prepare the players participating in the August 13-20 Upper Mazaruni District Games.
“We continue to distribute football gear across the country through M-FAP to ensure that players are prepared for competitions which ultimately lifts the level of the game,” GFF Technical Director Bryan Joseph shared.
The Upper Mazaruni District Games are held annually in Region Seven over several days and feature athletes in various disciplines, including football, archery, athletics, swimming and volleyball.
The football competition is the main sport of the Games. GFF congratulates the organisers of the Games and wishes all participating villages a memorable few days of healthy competition.
GFF President Wayne Forde launched M-FAP in 2020 with the full approval of Congress to provide support to the Federation’s members under four pillars: Administration and Operations, Equipment and Material, Competition and Technical Development, and Infrastructure Development. (GFF)
