“Today we are starting a session where we are going to be picking up players for the to make it to a National Team to represent Orange Walk. We have quite a few boys coming out and we are going to see what they have and based on that we are going to select a team to represent Orange Walk in the district eliminations, it’s a three day tournament that will be held in Belmopan and there we will compete against other districts.”

Orange Walk has long been ignored in the field of football, something that according to Head coach for the Orange Walk selection, Nicki Ramos, must change.

“Orange Walk has been a district that has been abandoned and we have talent in Orange Walk and we need to show them that and with events not that we only say it like that but Orange Walk is good but we need to show it to them.”

The selection of the Orange Walk team though, is not only about highlighting the sport of football or talent……it is also about engaging our youth in productive activities.

The three day district eliminations will be held in Belmopan on the 5th, 6th and 7th of August. Young football players are invited to visit the Louisiana field from 2:00 to 4:00pm.
