Their sponsorship of the tournament comes at an opportune time, as Organizers Petra have been forced to expand the tournament due to an overwhelming response from interested schools.

“As a company, we are deeply committed to fostering community engagement and promoting healthy lifestyles. We recognize the immense value of events like these, bringing people together through shared love for football,” The Stenna Local Content officer shared.

Moreover, events such as these align with our company’s values of care, innovation and performance.”
Initially aiming for 56 teams across the two competitions, a whopping 72 teams have signed up, thus spurring the need for a knockout round to be hosted this Saturday.
Touching on this development, Petra Co-Director Troy Mendonca shared a bit about how Stenna’s sponsorship would benefit the tournament.

“Of course, that [More teams] means an additional cost, as it relates to coordinating, referees, meals, snacks, transportation et cetera,” Mendonca highlighted. “To Stenna Drilling, we would extend our appreciation for coming onboard. That is going to assist, especially in this area. So, on behalf of myself and Co-Director, we would like to express heartfelt thanks to the Management and staff of Stenna Drilling,” Mendonca further stated in a bid of gratitude.
Also on hand on Thursday was Stenna Drilling’s Rig Manager Tim Swain, who pledged the company’s continued support for the tournament.
“We understand, obviously, the principal sport is cricket. So, one that’s close to our hearts, you know, coming from the UK and stuff, it’s an exciting opportunity to be able to sponsor an event like this. So, we’re looking forward to hopefully catching a few of the games and hopefully, our continued support going forward,” Swain remarked.
