The Guyana Floodlights Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA), at its meeting last night, reduced the amount of teams participating in the Guyana Cup and Guyana Master Cup to 16 total - 8 for the Guyana Cup Open 20/20 (4 from North America and 4 from Guyana), and 8 for the Guyana Master Cup 20/20 (4 from North America and 4 from Guyana).

GFSCA felt that this change was necessary for the tournament to run smoothly and would like to apologise to the two teams that had to be excluded.

Each tournament will be divided into 2 zones of 4 teams each. Each team will play 3 matches - 2 on Friday and 1 on Saturday morning. The top two teams from each zone will "cross" for the semi-finals at 1:30PM on Saturday. Two semi-final matches will be played at Bourda and the other two at Everest. The 2 finals will be on Sunday, at Everest only.

The format for the Sunday matches at Everest Cricket Ground has also been changed.
