ExxonMobil renews commitment to Bartica Regatta football


ExxonMobil Guyana has again partnered with the Bartica Regatta Committee to promote the annual Bartica Easter Regatta football activities.

Dubbed ‘ExxonMobil Football Cup,’ this year’s tournament promises to be bigger than ever, owing to increased financial input and the projected participation of ten male and two female teams.

Ryan Hoppie of ExxonMobil Guyana handed over a sponsorship cheque for $2.9 million to the Regatta Committee and reiterated the company’s firm commitment to supporting sport and other programmes that benefit Guyana’s citizens.

The company has increased its investment in this year’s Regatta Football tournament as a testimony to this commitment.

Receiving on behalf of the Regatta Committee, Chairman Kenneth Williams, committed to providing a high caliber of competition among the eight (8) home teams and two (2) visiting teams.

The Chairman also took the opportunity to express gratitude to ExxonMobil Guyana and said that a grateful region looks forward to a long-lasting partnership-in-sport with the company.

The ExxonMobil Football Cup will be played at the Bartica Community Centre Ground from March 23 to 30 and will comprise knockout matches among eight Bartica clubs, one team from the Middle Mazaruni and one from Eteringbang on the Cuyuni River.

Additionally, Bartica’s most prominent female footballers will be in action on the tournament’s final night, when Potaro Strikers Women take on Rivers View Women.

The much-anticipated match will excite their adoring fans, as the Potaro Women participate in the Guyana Football Federation Women’s First Division League.

Cash prizes, trophies, and other incentives will be available in all categories.
