The Petra Organization in partnership with Kentucky Fried Chicken [KFC], launched the Under-18 Goodwill Secondary School Football Tournament yesterday at the latter’s Vlissengen Road location.
The three day tournament will run from December 16th-23rd and will feature four teams, including the 2017 Trinidad and Tobago South Zone Champion, Shiva Boys Hindu College.
The other confirmed school is Annai Secondary of Region Nine, while the remaining two participants will be announced at a later date.
Troy Mendonca, Co-Director of the Petra Organization revealed that the tournament was conceptualized in 2017, but a lack of support hampered its commencement. He declared that the event will provide a possible indication of Guyana’s standard against its regional counterpart.
Store Manager of the KFC Hinck Street outlet, Madanna Nelson revealed that despite the tournament being their first venture into the sporting realm, it aligns with the company’s objective of community development.
Meanwhile, the Guyana Football Federation President Wayne Forde affirmed that the competition perfectly complements the federation’s attempt to develop its school football programme on a national scale.Saved in sportpics as KFC U18 Football launch
