ANSA McAL Distribution Inc. (AMDI) along with Petra Organisation on November 28, 2023, hosted a press briefing to announce the company’s (AMDI) support towards the International Goodwill Football Series that began on December 12th, 2023. Eight Schools across the region participated, namely, defending champions DC Caesar Fox (Waramadong) Secondary, St Ignatius Secondary, Secondary Jamaica’s Clarendon College, Trinidad and Tobago’s St Benedict’s College, Suriname’s SVO 4 and the top three teams from the ongoing Limacol Schools’ league.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony at AMDI’s Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara (ECD) headquarters, Managing Director Troy Cadogan revealed why ANSA McAL was, and always will be, in support of the competition.

“When they approached ANSA McAL, we jumped on board immediately because I personally felt that it would’ve given our local teams to see where the benchmark or where our players are compared to the rest of the Region. At the end of this tournament, we could actually say how strong youth football is in Guyana, and we could probably identify the development needs and how we need to move, to move to that next level,” the Managing Director shared.

Troy Mendonca, Co-Director of Petra Organisation, emphasized the tournament’s potential for expansion, particularly emphasizing the benchmark opportunities it offers. Mendonca commented, “We’re very happy to be here for this occasion, because this tournament, as you would know, is going to be massive for this country. In that, hopefully in the near future, it can be the tournament of the Caribbean, where we have a representative from each major geographical location in the Caribbean, coming on these shores to match skills with our boys here.”

The tournament was played on several grounds including The Queen’s College ground. The winning team walked away with GYD$500,000.
