It promises to be a weekend of great soccer and family fun when 36 teams take to the Strandfontein Sports Field for the annual u/16 tournament.

With four trophies up for grabs and great prizes to be won, the teams are hard at work sweating it out.

Three days were initially set up for the competition, but have since been altered to two days, depending on the Eid celebrations.

This could result in night games being played by the Mitchell’s Plain-based teams.

With added interest in the tournament this year, play-offs were also held to decide who would participate.

Mark Rodrigues, Bayview FC chairperson and tournament director said: “After the play-offs, the executive decided to call some teams back, because we were afraid we would miss some talent.”

Wayne Carstens, Local Football Association – Mitchell’s Plain (LFAMP) president, congratulated the teams qualifying for the tournament.

“The tournament is going to be a big occasion and we are proud to be associated with the Bayview Club in hosting this event,” he said.

He added that although many are looking at breaking out to bigger things in football at this age, he encouraged them to remember (soccer) is a team sport.

“Play hard, but if you lose, it is not the end of the world. As long as you give it your all and did not try to cheat your way through the tournament.”
