Charity Cup Ignites Bermuda Football Once Again

The start of the 2023/24 season was a huge success thanks to the Bermuda football community. On Sunday, September 3rd, 2023, fans from across the island gathered at the Devonshire Recreation Club to see 2022/23 Premier Division League Champions, PHC Zebras, take on the 2022/23 FA Cup Champions, North Village Rams.

The following day on Labour Day 2023, the Dudley Eve group stages commenced, which saw four (4) teams from the Premier Division getting into the swing of football once again.

As we look to continue to grow the support for our domestic senior leagues, the Bermuda Football Association (BFA) is incredibly proud to announce the successful partnership with a local business whose ethos and legacy are rooted in community support, the Lindo’s Group of Companies.

Zach Moniz, Manager at Lindo’s Group of Companies, confirmed the company’s commitment to football by sponsoring the four (4) Cup Competitions that feature teams from our Premier and First Divisions.

The Charity Cup sees the Premier Division League winners take on the FA Cup Winners, playing on the Sunday before Labour Day annually.

The notable Dudley Eve tournament includes all ten (10) Premier Division teams playing in the September to November match window.

The honorary Shield Trophy and Friendship Cup, which sees First Division and Premier Division teams, respectively, taking on each other during the November to January match window.

The coveted FA Cup sees teams from any Full Member Association playing against each other for THE pinnacle trophy of the senior men’s league.

Throughout the summer of 2023, BFA’s Marketing Committee members, responsible for securing sponsorship on behalf of the Association, engaged in several talks with Zach Moniz. Moniz said, “The Lindo’s Group of Companies recognizes how important sports in Bermuda are to the community. Football is one of the most popular sports on the island, and we are pleased to play our part in supporting it.

“When Lindo’s was approached by the BFA, it was without hesitation that we confirmed our support this year. We are proud to sponsor the Cup competitions being held for the 2023/2024 football season, and we can’t wait to watch! We hope that more businesses will get involved and support the sport where they can.”

The future of the annual cup competitions looks exceptionally bright. Next season, fans, players, and clubs can look forward to renewed excitement surrounding the season opener, Charity Cup, with the format of next year's match already being established.

Next year's Charity Cup will see the participating clubs choosing a charity to play for. BFA Marketing Chair, Terrisa Stewart, said, “I am grateful that Lindo’s are a partner of our Cup Competitions this season. Their support has allowed us to strategize on maximizing the potential of our Cup Competitions not just for this season but beyond.”

“We are excited to introduce a new element to the Charity Cup in the 2024-25 season. In alignment with our vision to ‘bring football alive,’ it is important for us to encourage the Clubs to play for a charity or cause they believe in. This will spark a new level of awareness for the Club and the charities they are playing for. Proceeds from the match will be split between the chosen charities, with the winning Club’s charity receiving a higher portion to add to the level of competition we know our athletes thrive on.”

“This new format is a win-win for the clubs and charities involved. It represents the true essence of what the Charity Cup is all about, and we hope it reenergizes football fans to think beyond the pitch and renews the sense of community that football has created on the island.”

Sports Minister Responds to Islandstats Story

The Bermuda Government is committed to providing a WADA compliant and clean competition platform for our athletes. The recent decision by WADA to label Bermuda as non-compliant is disappointing however we are working closely with WADA technical officers in both the Latin American Regional Office and in WADA Headquarters. All technicl staff are currently reviewing the draft amendments to Bermuda’s Anti-Doping in Sport Act, which we hope to have a positive outcome within the month.

The legislation will fulfill Bermuda’s obligations in complying with the WADA code.

The World Anti-Doping Programme has expanded significantly since the commencement of the Anti-Doping in Sport Act in 2012 and no amendments have been made since its inception.

WADA requested that BSADA undertake a thorough review of the Anti-Doping in Sport Act to bring it into compliance with the WADA Code. The Code is a core document that provides the framework for anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within sport organisations and public authorities around the world. BSADA submitted its recommendations for amendments to the Act and Government agreed to all of them.
While we are addressing the implementation of the proposed legislation Bermuda Government continues to support the testing regime carried out by BSADA. We will continue to work closely with WADA, Bermuda’s athletes and Bermuda’s sporting clubs to fight against doping and to protect the rights and health of our athletes.

Bermuda – BSADA has an excellent working relationship with WADA and it is regrettable that we are in this situation. We look forward to the commencement of the legislation later this year.

Bermuda Archers Selected for Youth Training Camp

World Archery in cooperation with Olympic Solidarity has selected Jaydon Roberts and Robin Selley based on their results from recent international/continental regional events, to travel to Medellin, Colombia for a Youth Training Camp from September 25th, 2023 to October 1st, 2023.

Both archers competed in the World Youth Championships in Ireland in July 2023 where they achieved personal best of 619/720 Jaydon and 536/720 Robin. They also competed in the Paris 2023 Hyundai Archery World Cup in August 2023 and the two had new personal best of 622/720 Jaydon and 566/720 Robin.

Coach Trina Roberts said, “Our Juniors have had a fantastic year competing in both Junior and Senior Events. The Paris 2023 Hyundai World Cup in Paris is where they both beat their July 2023 personal best at 70 meters shooting against seniors, the best in the world. Both have world rankings finishing up the outdoor season. Roberts has a world ranking of 228 in the Men’s Recurve Division and Selley has a world ranking of 304 in the Women’s Recurve Division. The maturity in this sport for these athletes has been great to watch. The training in Colombia will help elevate their game and prepare them for the 2024 season.”
