A under-13 seven-a-side Safer Schools Awareness Soccer Sports Day will take place at sports grounds of Rusthof Primary School in Strand on Saturday 26 October.

A partnership among Sports Against Crime South Africa (Sacsa), Old Mutual, Secure Rite Security, Somerset West Assist, Coca-Cola, Ajax Cape Town and the police, the event has attracted various teams from across the Helderberg and other areas.

President of Sacsa Vincent Daniels said owing to the high crime rate, sports is the only way to bring these down at a school and local level.

He added that the main game on the day will be the Ajax Cape Town under-14 side taking on the Sacsa under-14 team for the Crime Awareness Cup.

The Ajax CT team was also the winner of the Lucky Star Cup, which also saw a team from Orlando Pirates participate for the title.

“It will be a historic moment for Rusthof Primary School to host such a big event at the school’s sports field,” Daniels said.

The Safer Schools Awareness Soccer Sports Day starts at 08:30 and concludes at 14:30.
