It was recently disclosed exclusively to Guyana Times Sport that the Regional Member Associations (RMAs) of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) are in for some support.
GFF President Wayne Forde let the cat out of the bag during an interview with this publication, while sharing that the support was multifaceted.
The holistic support that the RMAs will soon benefit from is expected to boost their capacity.
This disclosure was made by President Forde, who shared that the support would be more than just the usual training and equipment.
“In another couple of, maybe in another week or two weeks, we will be making public the tremendous and unprecedented support that the Regional Member Associations will be receiving. Not just in equipment, in training and all the tools that they need to operate their football, but also in funding,” Forde revealed.
Revealing a little more about the project, Forde noted that the cash and kind that would be provided could be seen as an avenue for the RMAs to do some catching up after the time lost to the coronavirus pandemic that has halted football for over eight months.
“You will know exactly what amount will be allocated to various categories of competition and you’ll also know the tools that we’ll be giving to the Regional Member Associations and our affiliates to ensure they can now go out and execute and accelerate the work that we have to do to give ourselves some chance to catch up on the time lost in 2020,” the GFF President said.
The GFF boss went on to share that he anticipated the announcement would be one that would be greatly appreciated by football enthusiasts and the general public.
“I think that will be a very interesting sharing of information that we’re sure the entire public will be pleased as to how those plans will unfold,” Forde explained.
There are nine RMAs that fall under the GFF: the Bartica, Berbice, East Coast Demerara, East Bank Demerara, Essequibo/Pomeroon, Georgetown, Rupununi, Upper Demerara, and West Demerara Football Associations. (Jemima Holmes)
