Region 7 RDC contributes to GFF Women’s Super-16 Festival

The Regional Democratic Council (RDC) of Region 7 (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) has provided sponsorship for the GFF Women’s Super-16 Festival by covering the return transportation cost of the Essequibo team that opposed the Bartica team in last Sunday’s clash at the Bartica Community Centre Ground, which saw Bartica getting past Essequibo.

Region 7 Chairman Kenneth Williams, in handing over a letter of commitment to GFF President Wayne Forde, posited that the RDC is committed to alternative sources in support of its resource-based economy.
The correspondence read inter alia: “We recognise sports tourism as one such vehicle… The RDC will continue to support the Women’s Super-16 Festival without hesitation, as it is great for the sport and the development of our females. We also believe that the theme under which this Festival is being held is very important: ‘We Rise Against Domestic Violence’.”
In the presence of Bartica FA President Alden Marslow and Bartica Mayor Gifford Marshall, GFF President Wayne Forde applauded Region 7 for providing this sponsorship,and noted that that region has always been very supportive of the development of football.
“The GFF will continue to reach out to you, and we know that when called upon, you will deliver, as you are very conscious of the fact that many hands make light work,” Forde has said.
