15th April, 2016; Georgetown: The next three months will see a hive of football activities involving the Stag Elite League Finale, an International Friendly between Guyana and Canada, and the launching of a youth tournament.
The fixtures of the Stag Elite League Finale have had to be revised because of the International Friendly between Guyana and Canada, scheduled for 15th May, 2016 as well as the scheduled Caribbean Football Union’s Caribbean Men’s Cup international meet between Guyana and Curacao / US Virgin Islands, on the 1st and 7th June, 2016 respectively. The net result of the revision will see the semifinals being played on 22nd May and the finals on June 12.
In observance of Guyana’s Jubilee Independence Anniversary, the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) together with Stag Beer – the primary sponsor of the tournament – have initiated a “50-50 Promotion.” This will see patrons of the Stag Elite League Finale paying a 50% reduction on the entrance fee, that is, $500.00, as part of the Jubilee celebration. This promotion is effective for games held from May 15 – 30, 2016.
In preparation for that international game, the Men’s National team will be encamped from the 10th – 16th May, 2016. The first training session is scheduled for Tuesday, 19th April, 2016 at a venue to be announced.
Finally, the GFF is scheduled to launch the GFF/NAMILCO Thunderbolt Flour Power Under-17 Intra-Association Tournament on April 29, 2015 at the National Resource Centre. More details will be released soon.
