In terms of geography, Guyana belongs to South America, but with regard to football, the country is part of the North, Central American and Caribbean confederation. In recent years, internal political wrangling has beset Guyana. These problems have naturally affected football, which is only behind cricket in terms of popularity. However, the national association is leaving no stone unturned in its efforts to develop youth football to provide a solid foundation for the future. All ten regions conduct championships at U-13, U-17, U-20, U-23 and full (A) level. The national association also enrols its teams for all competitions organised by the CFU (Caribbean Football Union), CONCACAF and FIFA. A number of players and coaches have exerted a positive influence on football in Guyana, including George Greene, who was part of the West Indies football team that played against England in September 1959. Clive Brown was the first Guyanese player to receive a grant to study at a university in the USA (Clemson). He later became coach at Clemson and recruited more players from his home country.
On 3 December 2006, the Goal Bureau approved a project by the Guyana Football Federation, which for a long time previously could not be carried out for reasons relating to domestic politics. Now that a sponsor has guaranteed the transfer of land, there is nothing to stop the project being swiftly implemented and from 1 January 2007, work was due to begin on a national technical centre with a playing field, stands, dressing rooms and accommodation, which will enable the association to offer adequate training conditions to its national teams at all levels. The opening of this centre will be a long-awaited milestone for Guyanese football.
