Nassau, Bahamas - In a strong finish, the Milo Butler Future Stars ended the 2017 season, winning the Bahamas Youth Football League under 12 boys KnockOut tournament. The players also secured the championship title in the Baha Juniors Community Shield Tournament under 12 boys category, defeating the United C with a score of 1-0.  

This is the second season Milo Butler Distributors has sponsored the youth soccer club—outfitting the entire team with uniforms. Started five years ago as a way to educate under privileged children on the sport, the Future Stars program exposes players to new opportunities through soccer. Thanks to corporate partnerships like the one with Milo Butler, the team is able to pay league registration fees, purchase uniforms and secure much-needed training equipment. Nearly 100 children under age 17 and some 35 kids in the over 17 category have benefited directly from the Future Stars program.

Fabian Fernander, Marketing Manager at Milo Butler, congratulated the players and coaches on their victory in the recent championship.  “All of the players on this team demonstrate values that our company represents- dedication and teamwork. We are proud of the growth and progress of the team over the past two seasons and would like to commend them on a job well done. A special thanks to the coaches for their own dedication and commitment to developing the youth in our community,” he said.

Team coach, Ms. Ricqea Bain thanked the company for its support of the program. “Our players worked hard this season and we’ve had a very successful year. We are very proud of our boys and we would like to especially thank Milo Butler for supporting us over the past two seasons and we look forward to their continued support in to the future,” Ms. Bain said.
