January 20, 2016

Digicel SportsMax has announced that the BSSF Boys Final that was played on 17 December 2015 at the NSC will be aired on Digicel SportsMax 1 on Thursday, 21 January 2016 at 7:30pm.

“The BSSF and the BFA invite everyone to tune into Digicel SportsMax 1 to watch an exciting game between CedarBridge Academy and the Berkeley Institute,” the Bermuda Football Association said.

“We are all excited to demonstrate to the Digicel SportsMax audience that school football in Bermuda is of a high quality and that we love the game.”

When the venture was announced, BSSF official, Manny Faria stated “The BSSF Finals were a culmination of an exciting season of school football and the dramatic climax to a week of exciting finals football. We are extremely excited about this opportunity as in our discussions with Digicel SportsMax, we are all keen to showcase lots of other sports that are played in schools in Bermuda.”

BFA Officials Mark Wade and Maurice Lowe stated, “The BFA is really excited about this venture with Digicel SportsMax as it gives our players in Bermuda the opportunity to showcase school/youth football to the wider Caribbean region. We have seen school football finals on SportsMax for some time now and so we are pleased to know that Bermuda will be added to the schedule.

“This first project will also be a huge opportunity to BFA to negotiate for more football matches in Bermuda to be shown on Digicel SportsMax. As the BFA has stated previously, we aim to be the best in the Caribbean and to be highly competitive with the other CONCACAF countries.

“We are also pleased for our referees to have a chance to be seen on Digicel SportsMax in the wider region as we work to get referees from Bermuda appointed to the FIFA list. We encourage more young people, male and female, to take referee courses with the BFA and to become referees.”

Finally, the Digicel SportsMax opportunity will be a great avenue for our players and coaches to showcase their talents. We look forward to some exciting Finals on Thursday and to see the game being broadcast throughout the region on Digicel SportsMax.”

Digicel SportsMax Head of Production Max Tshunungwa stated, “As the leading sports broadcaster in the Caribbean, we are very proud to be associated with the BFA and the BSSF in airing the senior schools finals and we see this as the beginning of a very long and fruitful relationship with sports in Bermuda.
