Vizion Sports and Entertainment Agency in collaboration with the Georgetown Football Association (GFA) will commence their Caribbean Interclub football matches today at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) ground, Bourda.

The three day event which will continue on the 7th and 9th of March, was rescheduled due to the incessant weather during the December 2013 period and will pit three local sides against Jamaican unit Boystown FC in a series of matches.

The competing local sides are Alpha United, Slingerz FC and Buxton United. In the event’s opener at 18:00hrs, Alpha United will battle Buxton United while Slingerz FC will faceoff with Boystown FC in the feature showdown at 20:00hrs.
