BFA set to launch three leagues on Saturday

The Bartica Football Association (BFA), under its 2019 motto: ‘Raise the Standards’, will on Saturday be launching three leagues in different age categories, which will mark a historic day for the association.
The opening ceremony is scheduled to begin at 10:00am at the Bartica Secondary School ground. Thereafter, a female exhibition match kicks off at 10:30am, then the GFF-Pele Alumni Frank Watson Under-15 League, the Namilco Under-17 League and the BFA Senior Male League will kick off.
One match per league will be hosted on the open day. Officials of the BFA have pointed out that such a football venture is unprecedented in recent history at Bartica.
Football at Bartica had experienced a slump over a number of years, but is finally on the upswing again with the recent election of a new BFA Executive Committee and also the rehabilitation of the main community venue and the Bartica Community Centre Ground, which is soon to be completed.
President of the GFF, Wayne Forde, and other officials are expected to attend the launching of the Bartica leagues.
