Guyana Football Federa-tion [GFF] President Wayne Forde yesterday disclosed that the entity has sealed developmental partnerships with Denmark’s Football Association and Union of European Football Associations [UEFA], with a Memorandum of Understanding [MoU] slated to be signed in June.

This was revealed at a press conference at the Pegasus Hotel. “Today [yesterday], we had scheduled an important activity for the development of football in Guyana. Today, there was a signing of a MoU between the Guyana Football Federation and the Denmark Football Federation. The only reason why we are not doing that signing today is because President [of the Danish Football Association Jesper] Moller of Denmark, who is also an executive member of UEFA Council, has been called to an emergency meeting with UEFA that is actually taking place in Denmark,” Forde said.

“This partnership centres on every area of football development and as we speak, [CONCACAF Senior Project Manager Howard McIntosh] and I are finalising our discussions on some of the immediate projects that we will be partnering with UEFA. One category of project will be infrastructure; we visited one of the locations that we want to do a massive grassroots development pitch at and we are also discussing some of the specific areas of coaching education that we want to put as the first item on the partnership agenda,” he said…..
