Ansa McAL’s Public Relations Officer Darshanie Yussuf noted that the beverage giants did not hesitate to supply the cheques when it was requested by the Berbice, East Coast and East Bank associations in order to help the teams prepare for the tournament.
“We had no hesitation in acquiescing to the request since we understand what it takes to get one’s self in order for a high level competition. We at Ansa McAL have been partnering and sponsoring some of the associations’ tournaments over the years and we are aware of what it takes to prepare.”
Yussuf stressed that Ansa McAL is pleased to be a part of the tournament as it helped with the development of the game of football especially with the three associations joining forces.
