Clothing and Clark’s footwear giant Chetson’s, the ‘Home of Originals’, became the latest entity to throw its support behind the second annual Guinness Cage Street-ball Championship.
On Thursday, Managing Director Inshaan Ramkellawan made a donation of four replica size ADIDAS ‘Telsar’ FIFA World Cup balls and an undisclosed sum of money to Co-Principal of Three Peat Promotions, Rawle Welch.
Ramkellawan, speaking at the presentation, said he was happy to be associated with the tournament; adding that since it is intended to benefit communities and add to social cohesion and foster camaraderie among citizens of Guyana, he had no hesitation in offering assistance.
The 24-team tournament, which had its inaugural introduction last year at the National Gymnasium, will visit the Haslington Market tarmac.
Teams from the East Coast Demerara, Georgetown, Linden and West Demerara will compete in an event dubbed ‘East Coast’s best versus the Rest’.
Over $800, 000 in prize money will be up for grabs, while lucky fans will be able to win prizes over the five nights of competition.
