“For ExxonMobil Guyana, we see the immense value of investing in sports; it allows us to support the community and youths, two of our focus areas when we seek to invest,” Hoppie said.

Wayneright Bethune, President of the Upper Demerara Football Association (UDFA), encouraged players to embrace the ‘Beautiful Game’ with passion and sportsmanship.

Despite challenges at the senior level due to limited facilities, Bethune applauded the opportunity for youth participation provided by the schools’ tournament.

Dawn Barker, Region Ten’s Education Officer, stressed the importance of sports in personal development and commended ExxonMobil for their continued investment in youth football through New Era Entertainment.

Last year, Christianburg Wismar Secondary School emerged victorious, defeating New Silvercity Secondary to claim the coveted title.
