Two young Cape Town soccer fans were in their element at the recent Cape Town Cup final between Sporting Clube de Portugal and Crystal Palace at Cape Town Stadium.

The two soccer-mad youngsters, Sikho Mbokotho (8) and Aviwe Dekeda (5), who have life-threatening illnesses, watched both the semi-final and final matches of the Cape Town Cup. They also joined the captains at the coin toss on the field.

The soccer event was sponsored by Sun International and the Table Bay Hotel. The Reach for a Dream Foundation helped to give the two children an enriching experience.
