As such Co-Director of Petra, Troy Mendonca, highlighted the importance of Caribbean Airlines’ contribution.“You would understand how difficult it is to get seats around that time and I think with the support of Caribbean Airlines, they would make it happen for us. And whatever other contribution they make to this tournament, we’re very happy to be associated with Caribbean Airlines for the hosting of this tournament,” Mendonca said.On Caribbean Airlines’ behalf, Sales Executive responsible for Suriname and Guyana, Dion Innis disclosed that the sponsorship decision was an easy one, given Petra’s stellar track record in sport and social issues.“I think this decision was quite an easy one for us. We’ve obviously observed the work that the organisation has been doing in the promotion of sports at the junior level. The organisation has, over the years, not only been promoting sport but highlight in a very good way, a number of issues that have been plaguing our society. And that in particular is one of the reasons we decided to come on board in this tournament,” Innis stated.The KFC Goodwill tournament is a collaborative effort with the Petra Organisation and will include four teams, one of which will be an overseas team in the form of the Shiva Boys’ Hindu College. The local teams will comprise Annai Secondary and the top two finishers in the upcoming Guyoil/Tradewind Tankers tournament. The competition will run from December 16 to December 23.
