Harbour View FC will go in hunt of their fifth hold on the Jamaica Premier League title when they go up against Dunbeholden FC in the final at Sabina Park on Sunday starting at 6:00 pm.

Their sponsors - Victoria Mutual Group - have expressed delight in the achievements of the Stars of the East who are reaching the final for the first time since 2013 when they made it title number four.

“VM Proud is what we are,” shared Devon Barrett, Group Chief Investment Officer of the VM Group, in response to Harbour View Football Club securing their place in the finals of the Jamaica Premier League.

First-time sponsors of the local league, VM Group is also club sponsor of the Harbour View Football Club, and for Barrett, this move is a part of the Group’s journey to continue its mission of transforming lives.

“Our sponsorship of the JPL is a demonstration of our commitment to transforming the lives of Jamaicans in a holistic way. And, seeing the immense talent on the field, especially displayed by our team, Harbour View Football Club, indicates that we are indeed doing something right.”

Barrett also noted that at the start of the relationship with their sponsored club, the commitment was always to be with the players “on and off the field”. And this, he says has started with financial sessions with the team.

He also highlighted that regardless of the outcome of the finals, there is a “sweet surprise” in store for players and their staff.

“They have worked hard and have displayed exemplary sportsmanship and just for that, we have to recognise their efforts.”

Harbour View will be hoping to make it third time lucky in the final, as they are yet to beat Dunbeholden this season.
