The Guyana Football Federation’s (GFF) Stag Elite League is set to receive a much needed corporate boost from Courts Guyana Inc tomorrow.
According to a release from the furniture and appliance distributing giant, the GFF will pocket $1.5M which will go towards the hosting of the Stag Elite League.
The league, featuring eight of the country’s top clubs,( Alpha United, Slingerz FC, Fruta Conquerors, Georgetown Football Club, Monedderlust, Guyana Defence Force, Pele and Buxton United) will kick off on Friday September 18 at the Leonora Track & Field Facility.
The league which is mandated by both FIFA and CONCACAF was formulated to develop football at the club level which should in turn provide a cadre of well-trained elite players to represent Guyana at the international level.
Courts being no stranger to sport, especially football, said that they welcome this development as the company is already actively involved with football at the Under 11 level through the Courts PeeWee Tournament which is slated to be launched for the 2015 edition later this month.
More details of the company’s sponsorship and support of the Stag Elite League will be given at the presentation ceremony tomorrow.
