PHILIPSBURG – UTS has pledged its support as corporate sponsor to Oualichi Women’s Soccer Association whom will be organizing the first Dutch Caribbean Women’s Soccer Cup.
The competition will host the association’s local women’s soccer team as well as the Bonaire Female Selection, CVV Willemstad from Curaçao and Sv. Oemasoso from Surinam.
The tournament is scheduled to kick-off on the 26th of June and will continue until June 28th. The one of a kind event brings female soccer clubs from Dutch-speaking countries in the Caribbean and South America together to compete and develop the sport amongst sister teams.
“We welcomed the opportunity to support such a sports competition and also welcome the visiting teams to our beautiful island,” says UTS Marketing and Communication Officer, Ivy Lambert.
“This type of sports exchange introduces the visiting teams to the many things St. Maarten has to offer as a travel destination. The likelihood of visiting competitors making a return trip for recreational purposes thereafter is much higher. The competition also highlights the skills and capabilities of our regional female soccer teams. We wish all participants and spectators an exciting and enjoyable competition this weekend,” Lambert continues.
The Competition kicks off on Friday 26th of June at 6:00pm with the opening ceremony and the first game Sint Maarten vs. Bonaire followed at 8:30pm by Surinam vs. Curacao.
