Saturday, November 21st, 2015
With the Volleyball tournament approaching its end, a new sporting activity is being organized for the island. The San Pedro Sports Council, in collaboration with the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture is putting together an 11-aside Football Tournament. The competition will include two categories, male and female, with games been held during the weekends. The event will officially kick off on December 18th at the Honorable Louis Sylvester Sporting Complex.
After the registration of teams, there will be a meeting with the teams’ captains and owners on Tuesday, December 1st, with Hector “Tito” Alamilla, Councilor in charge of sports. “At the meeting we will discuss the details of the tournament with team members. Some of the things that will be covered at the meeting will be, the requirements, the schedule of the games, and what prizes will be given at the tournament. The more teams we have signing up, the bigger the prizes will be,” said Alamilla. According to him, the SPTC will be improving the lighting on the pitch where the matches will take place. “The Town Board will also be assisting us with the illumination of the sporting arena and fixing up the play ground so that we can have the games running smoothly. At the same time, we will be working on setting up seating areas for the football fans that will come out and support their favorite teams,” ended Alamilla. He also mentioned that prior to the official competition; there will be a football marathon on Friday, December 6th which will be open to any team.
Alamilla would like to encourage everyone who is interested in participating in the tournament to register as soon as possible. Registration can be done at the SPTC office with Wilbert Magaña. The registration comes with a fee of $300 for each team. The deadline for registration is November 30th.
