Jialing supports GFF with 250cc bike for lucky football patron
Automobile Power Products (Jialing) is offering a brand-new red motorcycle to one lucky patron when action resumes this weekend in Elite League football with a double-header at the Tucville Ground, Georgetown.
After the conclusion of the first half of the tournament in December, the top four teams will clash in what is dubbed a League Leaders Knockout competition.
A simple media briefing was held Thursday at the distributor of the Jialing line’s location at Charlotte and Oronoque Streets, Georgetown, where Marketing Manager Romel Richmond explained that the motorcycle – a brand new Jialing 250cc, popularly known as the GY-5 bike – was superbly built with inverted shocks, and several other outstanding features.
“What I can tell you is that this powerhouse was superbly built with inverted shocks which offer that support and proper stabilisation, and aluminium rims, which make the bike altogether a quality product. Additionally, with its 250cc engine, that winner will be sure of getting to his or her destination on time,” Richmond stated.
He further stated that his company was pleased to be associated with the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), which is responsible for running off the competition.
Points leaders Guyana Defence Force will face runner-up Fruta Conquerors in the feature match, while third-place Victoria Kings will come up against fourth-place Buxton United in the opening game. The winners will meet in the final on March 12, after the losers clash in the third-place playoff. The second half of the League proper will kick off on March 19, and it is during this period that spectators will become eligible to enter the Patron Prize promotion.
Richmond further stated that patrons become eligible to enter the competition by placing their half-ticket stubs into a box located at the match venues. Persons must be 18 years and older to be eligible to claim the prize, and the winner must be present at the venue on the night of the drawing to receive same.
Players and employees of Automobile Power Products are not eligible to enter the competition. As part of the Patron Prize, the company will cover the cost of registration, fitness, road licence, number plate and helmet, as well as the first servicing of the bike.
Meanwhile, Competition Director Ian Alves gave a review of what had taken place, and promised that the remainder of the competition was expected to be exciting as well.
