Team Needs Financial Assistance to Meet Competition Expenses

Andres Makin Sr.

The team has put together a budget for expenses related to the tournament; however, it needs another one hundred thousand dollars to meet its overheads.


Supt. Andres Makin Sr., Manager, Police United F.C.

“We have set a budget, we have already put a budget in place because we’ve done our inquiries and so forth.  So we’ve come up with a budget but so far we’re far from achieving what the budget is but at the same time I must also say or reveal that in the Champions League you’re also given a grant from the Champions League itself, so you’re looking at around a hundred thousand Belize [dollars] that will be granted to us likewise.  But that in itself will not be able to take care of all the expenses that we’ll be undertaking, you know, so it goes a little beyond that and therefore we’re hoping that we could meet what they would be giving us, you know.  So it will run us around two hundred thousand to play these games.”
