DST Group boost for new league

DST Group continued its active involvement in local football after agreeing to sign on as tournament sponsors for the 2010 National Veterans League yesterday.

Starting its affiliation with football in the Sultanate during the 2007/2008 season of the Brunei League, the company proved that its support is not only limited to the country's premier competition by providing $10,000 for the administration of Brunei's sole veteran league.

Group Development Officer of DST Group Hj Marsad Hj Ismail handed over a mock cheque for the amount to Veteran Football Association (VFA) president Ali Hj Ismail during a ceremony at DST Group's headquarters in Tungku Link.

Kicking off on May 9, not only is the tournament the first that VFA has organised since it was formed in November last year, it is also the only one of its kind to be held.

"We really want to thank DST Group for giving us its support," said the competition's secretariat Sharbini Mohidin.
