This Sunday, June 17, 2012 will see the commencement of another sporting tournament sponsored by Rooster Select, following the products successful alignment with the 2012 national men’s basketball tournament here.
For the second year running Rooster Select has graciously accepted the invitation to sponsor a small goal football tournament in Babonneau. During a check presentation Thursday morning at the WLBL office in Castries Gaius Harry representing Rooster Select announced that the brand had taken the bold step of coming on board as title sponsors. Therefore the event is now known as “The Rooster Select 2012 Babonneau Small Goal Football Competition.” Quite apart from cash sponsorship Rooster Select will provide t-shirts, footballs, medals and trophies for the tournament among other items.
“This tournament, which will involve Babonneau and its surrounding environs, is one that we see as re-energizing that community spirit and togetherness that some often say is lacking here in Saint Lucia,” Harry stated Thursday. He went on to add that WLBL, the parent company of Rooster, was not just about selling products, but with various brands, have become entrenched in the very fabric of the Saint Lucian society through various social, sporting, cultural and community activities. “This is not by chance, but rather by design since we believe that nothing brings people together like sports, music, good cuisine and drinks and that to have a progressive society our people must be developed not just academically, but socially, culturally and physically. By physically we are talking about the mind body and spirit empowerment that takes place when our people are engaged in activities such as football and other sports,” Harry pronounced.
He went on to beseech the organizers to seek to espouse the principles of discipline that good sportsmanship requires and that the partnership with Rooster Select would bring about a successful tournament.
Unveiled in 2009 Rooster Select, a locally produced dark brew, brought home gold at the Monde selection in Brussels, just nine months after its launch. “It is our hope that this tournament becomes just as successful, by becoming a premier sporting event and one which persons not just from the Babonneau area, but island-wide will look forward to, year after year,” Gaius Harry ended by saying.
