MVP gold ring highlight of Kings of Studies’ incentives

Designed with a twist, the Kings of Studies football tournament will feature teams comprising University of Guyana students from various faculties, in contrast to how events are traditionally organised on campus.
The action will commence this Saturday at the Turkeyen Campus on the pitch near the Behavioural Science Building from 11:00h, as a total of 10 teams will be vying to see who will be crowned as the Kings of Studies 2019.
Among the prizes to be won is a solid gold ring to be awarded to the tournament’s Most Valuable Player (MVP).
This was confirmed by first-year student and tournament organiser Jafar Gibbons,

who stated that this prize was sponsored by Antonio Fredericks.
Gibbons also stated that the competition level was expected to be high as teams were eagerly anticipating the event.
The matches will be round-robin style, followed by the knockout stage, which will be three games – two semi-finals and the final.
The games will be played in two five-minute halves for the one-day event. A few of the ten teams that will be vying for top honours include Goons, Kanaima, Hot Topic, and Hot Strikers.
Gibbons noted that he was sincerely grateful to the administration for allowing him to host such an event as it is the first time that a student has been granted permission to host a sporting event on campus.
He was also quite appreciative of the persons and entities who have contributed towards the successful hosting of the event.
These include the Guyana Football Federation Inc, C&L Construction Inc, the Kashif and Shanghai Organisation, Signature Moov, the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Sharma Solomon, Robbie Rambarran, Asim Shakur and Antonio Fredericks, to name a few.
