“This tournament is geared towards the high school students so we started planning about two weeks ago and this Tuesday we finally met with the Sport Directors and we worked on the schedule of the games, matches and also the days that it would be played so at this point it is closed and this is going to be an eighteen and under high school tournament only for male students so that will kick off this Friday at the Louisiana field and we will have two games one will start at four o’clock and the other one will start at five thirty in the afternoon.”

Executive member of the Orange Walk Football Association, Hector Morales, stated that at the end of the competition, the winners will be awarded with trophies; however, the association is presently working on generating more income so as to purchase other items that will be presented to the participants.

“We have compromised ourselves from the district as the Orange Walk Football Association to provide them with the team trophies for first, second and third places and we are working so hard in getting other members of the community to sponsors us with the medals and little other tokens for the players who will be participating but we will decide that along the tournament.”

As mentioned earlier by Morales, the competition is scheduled to commence this Friday at the Louisiana football field at 4:00 p.m. and is expected to culminate on Friday May 27th, 2016.
