Inclement weather conditions did not stop young and enthusiastic soccer players from attending last week’s Swiftresponse Street Soccer Classic Friendship tournament played at Jubilee Park Sports Fields in Uitenhage.

The tournament was played over two days and according to Ade Adekunle, organiser of the event, the turnout was good with approximately 220 boys and girls who thoroughly enjoyed the games.

“The purpose of the tournament is to build friendships, to unite and together enjoy the beautiful game of soccer.

“It also is not about winning or losing, but uniting through sport, bonding with new friends and enjoying the game,” said Ade Adekunle from Swiftsresponse Street Soccer Classic.

Absa this year joined the Friendship tournament by sponsoring the trophies.

The next Swiftresponse Street Soccer Classic will be held during the September/October school holiday.
