This year’s LIME Pelican Football Challenge was a financial loss for the organizers. This disclosure has come from Mia Mottley, who heads Pelican Ventures Inc., the entity behind the just ended September 9 to November 30 tournament, which featured 12 franchises split into two groups. In an interview with WEEKENDSPORT, the long-serving parliamentarian pointed to the below par attendance this year of under 2 500 paying fans nightly for the majority of group matches, which were all held at Kensington Oval. While pleased with the crowd for the semi-finals and last Friday’s final between Akademiks and Phoenix UFO Toyota Fire House on Independence Day, Mottley said the increase in numbers only marginally compensated for the high overall cost of staging Barbados’ richest sporting tournament.
