Primary schools are invited to become part of the biggest soccer tournament in the world for children between 10 and 12 years by entering this year’s Danone Nations Cup.

Over 1500 schools register to participate in the tournament each year. The first prize is a trip to participate in the world finals with 31 other countries.

The closing date for registration is 1 March. Games will begin at cluster level immediately after this. The winners will progress to the regional finals, culminating in nine provincial winners playing in the national finals.

“Through the Danone Nations Cup we are reaching kids at a crucial age,” says Chantel ­Ehlers, spokesperson of Danone.

“We are passionate about making a difference to people’s lives. We are also encouraging kids to believe in their dreams.”V To register contact the sports coordinator of the Western Cape department of education or Themba Tshabalala of the South African Schools Football Association on 072 588 4957 or shakesonthemove@gmail.com or find the forms on DNCSouthAfrica on Facebook.
