GT Beer signs as official sponsor
FOOTBALL fans will have the added benefit of refreshing with Banks DIH beverages during this year’s Limacol round-robin knock-out football tournament, set to commence on Monday. The company, through its GT Beer brand yesterday at its Thirst Park office, signed onto the 2017 edition of the Petra-organised tournament which will feature sixteen different teams.
Speaking on behalf of the company, Public Relations Officer Troy Peters contended that the company shares a longstanding relationship with the organisers adding, “We see this as a developmental phase of football in Guyana and we know that a lot of players will benefit from playing football and the involvement of Banks DIH Limited.
“We know that teams from around the country would be participating and people will get an opportunity to see this tournament in their backyard so to speak,” Peters added.
Meanwhile Petra Director Troy Mendonca thanked Banks for signing onto the tournament, adding “our mandate was to revitalise football at the school level and assist in areas where we see a gap”.
“When the (STAG) Elite League would have started, I think just over a year ago we thought that it was wise to get the other teams involved (in playing football) and we got the blessing of the GFF and we are happy to continue this year.”
He contended that the tournament, which features approximately fifteen playing dates will see the best of the various associations come together for exciting football action.
On the tournament’s first playing date, Police clash with Mahaica Determinators from 18:30hrs at the GFC ground, while Riddim Squad and Camptown play the feature game of the night.
