SportsMax team to cover opening night of KFC Elite League Season Six


SportsMax, the Caribbean’s foremost sports broadcaster, will film the highly awaited opening night of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF)/KFC Elite League Season Six on February 25.

A team of producers arrived in Guyana on February 21 to document the developments in football here, with the Elite League as the focal point.

They will document Sunday’s opening ceremony at the GFF National Training Centre in Providence, East Bank Demerara, which will be attended by the 10 Elite teams – defending champions Guyana Defence Force, Western Tigers, Guyana Police Force, Fruta Conquerors, Den Amstel, Buxton United, Ann’s Grove, Santos and the recently promoted, Monedderlust and Slingerz.

The crew will also cover the exciting double-header featuring the match-ups between Slingerz FC against Monedderlust FC, as well as Santos FC taking on the Guyana Defence Force FC.

The final package will reach over 1.5 million households across 26 Caribbean territories on SportsMax and/or SportsMax2, CEEN TV, SportsMax+, SportsMax Apps, and the SportsMax YouTube Channel.

It will include in-depth insights into the present GFF administration, shedding light on their ongoing programmes and goals; Elite Clubs’ rich history through exclusive interviews with players and officials, and the amazing journey so far of the Golden Jaguars and Lady Jags.

The SportsMax team will film in various locations, including Georgetown, the East Coast Demerara, East Bank Demerara, and Bartica.

Of particular focus will be the Academy Training Centre (ATC) programme in Bartica. GFF President Wayne Forde noted that the alliance with the Caribbean sports broadcasting brand presents a fantastic opportunity to showcase the talent and potential of local players on a broader regional platform.

“Our collaboration with SportsMax is a significant stride in advancing the promotion of Guyanese footballers in the Caribbean, with a specific emphasis on our national teams, Elite League, and grassroots initiatives.”

“The comprehensive coverage will also afford viewers a lucid insight into the varied initiatives integral to the GFF’s agenda for fostering the growth of football, and highlight the sport’s power to unite and positively impact lives.”

Sunday’s launch will also receive promotion in the upcoming days on SportMax Zone.

Guided by Forde’s leadership, significant investments have been committed to fostering the development of football across various tiers, including the national team programme, club football and grassroots initiatives across Guyana.

Season Six will feature a total of 90 scheduled games across various grounds in Georgetown, West Coast Demerara, East Bank Demerara and Berbice.

Teams will be competing for the G$2,000,000 first-place cash prize, while the second, third, and fourth-place finishers are set to receive G$1,200,000, G$800,000, and G$500,000, respectively. The film crew is set to depart Guyana on February 26, 2024. (GFF)
