GT Beer ‘Keep Your Five Alive’ Futsal starts today

first_imgThe sixth edition of the GT Beer ‘Keep Your Five Alive’ Indoor Competition is anticipated to provide riveting action from today (Saturday), when the tournament kicks off at the National Gymnasium.Eager and determined teams are expected from Georgetown, Linden, Berbice, and from both west and east coasts and banks of the Demerara county.Organiser Kevin Adonis, in an invited comment, said this year’s edition is expected to surpass last year’s in terms of excitement and fan support. He is urging teams to bring out their supporters to ensure that their hopes of ‘keeping their five alive’ are increased by the turnout of fans.“The concept is one that I like. It allows a team only one opportunity to play for the prizes; and because of this, all the teams come well prepared to play at a high level, and so the fans are the real winners,” Adonis explained.He added that thirty-two of the best teams in the country have been assembled, including defending champions West Front Road’s ‘Gold is Money’ and beaten finalist Future Stars.Among the other teams making the shortlist are: Sparta Boss, Bent Street, Leopold Street, and most of the zone champions of the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ competition.In opening night action: Rhythm Stars (Mocha) tackle recently-crowned Berbice Guinness champions Trafalgar, and this encounter will be followed by the clash between Agricola and Broad Street.Kingston then square off against Swag Entertainment out of Linden, before another mining community team, NK Ballers, take on Sophia.In the final game of the night, Leopold Street play host to East Coast Melanie Damishana.The fixtures for the next two playing days are seen below.On Thursday, July 12, Buxton Diamond engage West Demerara Showstoppers, while the young Uprising team from East Coast Demerara go up against Linden’s Silver Bullets.ESPN then collide with East Coast BV, before Ann’s Grove and North East La Penitence take to the court.The rejuvenated Tiger Bay unit then faces California Square, before Sparta Boss and Tucville bring the curtains down on the evening’s proceedings.On Saturday, July 14, Albouystown and Upsetters get things going, before Future Stars and Alpha Warriors square off.Back Circle then tackle Kitty Hustlers, before Linden’s Dave & Celena All Stars go up against Bent Street.The reigning champs, West Front Road, then close the night with a clash against Alexander Village.Insert: GT Beerlast_img read more
