Blackheart champions, the Soufriere Stumpers, are the recipients of this year’s $25, 000 cash prize. Beyond the football arena, Blackheart CEO David Christopher, says the tournaments pump money into the local economy.
“When you look at the stories and experiences of the vendors and bills paid to date to security, Airbnb accommodation for workers and other fees, Blackheart puts the bread on the table of many and we are proud of the investment we making in the host communities and nationally,” Christopher said.
According to him, Blackheart Productions has previously paid over $400,000.00 covering venues, staff, accommodation, security and production. He issues his gratitude to all stakeholders for their contributions to the events.
“Blackheart Productions extends gratitude to the thousands of patrons who supported the Games which were all incident-free. Special thanks to the 2023 sponsors, Directors, Production Team and all stakeholders without whom the 2023 tournament wouldn’t be a success. Planning and preparation have begun to make next year’s tournament bigger and better.”
The theme for the 2023 tournament was “Shooting Goals, Not Bullets” in response to the increase in gun and gang activity on-island.
