Home Sports Rain washes out King of Games 2019 – new date to be...
The highly anticipated King of Studies 2019 small goal tournament scheduled to be hosted on Saturday at the University of Guyana, Turkeyen Campus, opposite the Behavioural Sciences Building has been postponed until further notice due to inclement weather.
The rains commenced on Friday which was a bit of problem for the tournament, however organisers were optimistic as they believed everything would have been green lighted once there was no rain on the said day of the game. However Mother Nature had different plans as the down pours commenced from 01:00h in the morning and continued making the field soggy and partially water logged. However upon speaking with the teams about moving the date, they pledged their allegiance as they were eager to compete in the tournament no matter what troubles lay ahead. Gibbons also apologised to his fans and thanked them for their continued support, as the hype for the tournament will only continue to grow from here. Gibbons is currently in the works with the sports administration as the young organiser is hoping to have the tournament pulled off very soon in the near future, providing good weather prevails.
The tournament was created with the intention of encouraging student interaction and bringing students together at the University of Guyana. Therefore the competition will feature teams that comprise members from various faculties as opposed to University norms (inter faculty sports). Ten teams will be vying for top honours such as Goons FC, Kanaima FC, Hot Topic FC, Hot Strikers FC and many more.
The matches will be round-robin style, followed by the knockout stage, which will see three games – two semi-finals and the final. The games will be played in two five-minute halves for the one-day event.
Some of the entities on board are C&L Construction Inc, Kashif and Shanghai Organisation, Guyana Football Federation Inc, the Office of the Vice Chancellor at the University of Guyana, Signature Moov, Robbie Rambarran, Asim Shakur, ASP Antonio Fredericks, Sharma Solomon and Lavern Fraser.
