After seven days of intense action in the Guyana Football Federation (GFF)/Stag Super 16 Year- End Tournament, a new champion will be crowned when finalists Buxton United and Den Amstel square off for top honours at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) Ground on the first night of 2019.
Den Amstel will be the ones to watch for in the finale as they defeated the 2018 Elite League champions, the Fruta Conquerors in the semi-finals. On the other hand, the Buxtonians have proven their worth as they defeated defending
champions GDF 3-2 earlier in the Tournament.
Den Amstel are known for their early success, which has been displayed throughout the tournament. They will be depending on the big guns, namely Jamal Harvey and Kester Jacobs, to lead them over the line. With a solid defence, the Den Amstel side are practically impenetrable.
The Buxtonians rarely score early, but have produced where it matters. The squad is usually more defensive, but as the match intensifies, so do their level of play. They will turn to the likes of Dillon Wright, Ronaldo Fredericks and Shemar Fraser up front to get the score sheet lively.
In the match which precedes, Western Tigers will battle Fruta Conquerors in the third-place showdown.
The winning team will receive $2,000,000 plus a trophy and equipment while the second-place team will receive $1,000,000 plus a trophy and equipment, and the third-place team will receive $500,000 plus a trophy and equipment. The fourth-place team will receive no cash prize but a trophy and equipment.
