Flow Sup­ports Vet­er­ans Foot­ball

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Lo­cal foot­ball is get­ting more sup­port from Flow as the com­pany con­tin­ues to de­liver on its prom­ise to pump more re­sources into the de­vel­op­ment of sports in St. Lu­cia.

Flow is spon­sor­ing the 2016 Vet­er­ans Foot­ball Tour­na­ment which is sched­uled for kick­off on the week­end of Novem­ber 5 -6 at the La Res­source Play­ing Field, Den­nery. Vet­er­ans in Sports Inc are or­ga­niz­ing it in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the St. Lu­cia Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

Flow is pro­vid­ing fi­nan­cial and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions sup­port to the tour­na­ment.

At the of­fi­cial press launch on Wed­nes­day Oc­to­ber 26th 2016, Mar­ket­ing & Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Ex­ec­u­tive at Flow St. Lu­cia, Sher­ma­lyn Si­donie-John praised Vet­er­ans in Sports Inc. and the St. Lu­cia Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion for ‘putting great foot­ball on show’ and for bring­ing the veteran foot­ballers to­gether so they can con­tinue en­joy­ing the sport.

“It has cer­tainly shown that foot­ball is for all and there are al­ways av­enues for get­ting back into the game, even for those who had pre­vi­ously ‘re­tired’ from the sport,” she added.

She said Flow re­mains firmly com­mit­ted to do­ing all it can to cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for more St. Lu­cians to par­tic­i­pate in sports and de­velop ac­tive and healthy lifestyles.

“It is also why we have taken sports broad­cast­ing in the Car­ib­bean to a whole new level with our Flow Sports Premier Pack and our cov­er­age of Premier League foot­ball in­clud­ing chan­nels like Manu TV and Chelsea TV. Our af­fil­i­a­tion with the Vet­er­ans Foot­ball Tour­na­ment is a long­stand­ing one of which we are very proud, and we are very pleased to be sup­port­ing our veteran foot­ball he­roes once again,” said Si­donie-John.

Six­teen teams will be com­pet­ing in the tour­na­ment. The winners of the matches will qual­ify for the semi fi­nals of the Plate Cham­pi­onship to be held Jan­uary 29.

The win­ner of the Plate cham­pi­onship will re­ceive the FLOW Plate and cash.

The min­istry of sports also falls within the purview of Le­nard “Spi­der” Montoute (pic­tured above). Montoute is also known as a sports en­thu­si­ast hav­ing prac­ticed sports health­care prior to pub­lic life.
