– MVP Sport, trophy Stall onboard
The Petra Organisation, with support from Trophy Stall and MVP Sports, have collaborated to host the inaugural edition of the Upper Mazaruni Inter-Village U-18 Football Championship, set to start on June 18th.
The competing teams are: Kaikan/Arau, Paruima, Waramadong, Kamarang, Kako, and Jewalla.
Each of the competing teams will receive one football, while the co-ordinating committee collected four balls and eight corner flags.
The tournament will be played at the Edwin United Sports ground with the DC Caesar Fox School serving as the co-ordinating committee.
Neil Henrito, co-ordinator of the competition, stated that the school decided to stage the event because it is difficult to acquire sponsorship given the cost associated with participating in competitions.
Henrito further said that he is pleased to have the Petra Organization onboard as they are at the forefront of the development of youth football especially at the school level.
Meanwhile, the Petra Organisation Co-Director, Troy Mendonca, stated, “We are happy to be associated with the event. We have developed a relationship with school over the years and I am happy to see they took the initiative to have a competition of this nature played within their realm.”
He further said that entity will provide any necessary support and wish them all the best for a successful tournament.
The six villages will be competing in an initial group stage format before the final on June 25th.
