It was announced, during a joint launching of the program between BDO and the BVI Football Association last Friday, that over 550 boys and girls from throughout the territory, are scheduled to participate in the BDO 2012 Schools Football League.
In addition to supporting Football, BDO, which has also been a proud supporter of many youth events in the territory, including basketball camps put on by the BVI Hoop-It-Up Foundation, athletic meets, Kids and the Sea (KATS) and Makos Swim Club, is making its biggest contribution, with a $20,000 investment in the 2012 Schools Football League.
