The Calvin Ayre Foundation joins a list of corporate sponsors for the Antigua and Barbuda Men’s Basketball team, the Bulldogs. 
Calvin Ayre, founder and chairman of the Foundation, presented a cheque to the President of the Antigua and Barbuda Basketball Association (ABBA), Carlton Brodie, early last week at the Ministry of Sports.
The funding is geared towards the campaign of the team that is presently in Suriname contesting the FIBA AmeriCup 2021 Caribbean Men’s Pre-Qualifiers.
Ayre, who is an avid sports enthusiast according to the ministry of Sports, “understands the role that sports play in the community as well as to the youth of Antigua and Barbuda.”
“It is our corporate responsibility as business owners in Antigua and Barbuda to support sports organisations like ABBA,” said Ayre. 
Also present at the handing-over event was Minister of Sports, Daryll Matthew who thanked Ayre personally and his foundation for coming on board and supporting sports in the country.
The Bulldogs comprising of Bryan “Hollywood” Matthew, Lennox “Termite” McCoy, Mario “Axel” Davis, Vivian “Boast” Destin, Cohen DeSouza, Xavier “Xman” Meade, Adonis Humphreys, Kwame Brathwaite, Ernest Scott, Clinton “Scare dem” Joshua, Kareem “Macky” Edwards, Selassie Brathwaite and Kenroy “Chicken” Telemaque will go into action this week in Group B as they face off against Bermuda, Barbados, Montserrat and Haiti. 
The top two overall teams will advance to the next round of home and away matches.
