THE third KFC Goodwill School Football Under-18 tournament will feature two visiting teams, St. Benedict’s College from Trinidad and Tobago and SVB Academy of Suriname, along with defending champions from Guyana, Annai Secondary, Christianburg Wismar Secondary, D. C. Caesar Fox Secondary, commonly called Waramadong, and Golden Grove Secondary.

According to Co-Director of the Petra Organisation, Troy Mendonca, this tournament is a stepping stone towards developing one mega Caribbean tournament, and he is extremely open to partnering with all stakeholders to achieve such in the near future.

“Our vision clearly remains to have this event grow into a featured event among the Caribbean countries and so we are proud to have an international brand sharing the same vision with us in the KFC franchise”, Mendonca stated at Thursday’s launch held at KFC Guyana’s Vlissengen Road outlet.

Also speaking at the launch held at KFC Guyana’s Vlissingen Road location, was the Chairman of the National Sports Commission, Kashif Muhammad, who expressed a desire to support the growth of the tournament.

More so, the Ministry of Education is happy to be a partner adding to the rounded development of students.

Marketing Manager, Pamela Manasseh, expressed that Beharry Restaurant Holdings through KFC Guyana is thrilled to be a part of this tournament which builds the life-skills of student-athletes.

The tournament will be staged from December 14-23 at the Ministry of Education ground, Carifesta Avenue.

However, should the inclement weather continue, the organisers indicated they will use the Guyana Football Federation’s training facility at Providence.

The teams will be divided into two groups of three and each team will face each other in the group.

Subsequently, the first and second-placed teams from each group will advance to the semifinals.

Group A comprises St Benedict’s College, Golden Grove Secondary, and Waramadong Secondary, while Group B includes Annai Christianburg Wismar Secondary and SVB Academy.
