Camptown Football Club’s inaugural Troy Cook Memorial tournament which was slated to commence today at the club’s Campbellville ground has been postponed until further notice.
The sudden postponement is to allow the Georgetown Football Association (GFA) to complete its rescheduled Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Premier League Zone Playoffs.
Prior to the rescheduling, approval had been given by the GFA for the Troy Cook Memorial to start and the proposed dates were accepted.
The eight team knockout tourney which is sponsored by ANSA McAL through its Stag Beer Brand was launched at the entity’s Beterverwagting location on September 9.
The competing teams will be Alpha United, BK Western Tigers, Camptown FC, Fruta Conquerors FC, Georgetown Football Club (GFC), Guyana Defence Force (GDF), Pele FC and Santos FC.
Riddim Squad is the alternate team in case any of the named sides is unable to participate. The victorious team will receive $500,000 and a trophy while second and third place finishers will pocket $200,000 and $100,000 with trophy respectively.
All fixtures will be contested at the Campbellville club’s home venue. General admission to each fixture will be $500. Patrons who are attired in the colours of their respective team when they are competing will be given a reduced entrance fee of $300.
