FC Porto players Ncedo ‘Rasta’ Simani and Sonwabile Mbiko with the Rainbow Soccer tournament trophy.

FC Porto made history by winning its maiden Rainbow Soccer Tournament after hammering Galaxy FC from Mitchell’s Plain 2-0 at Vuyiseka Sport Complex on Sunday 28 February.

The Philippi-based team walked away with a R10 000 cash prize, a trophy, soccer kit and gold medals.

Coach Khanyo Majozi said he was pleased with the way his boys performed throughout the competition. He described the tournament as a stepping stone into the future. “The boys performed very well,” he said. “They played according to our plan. We worked very hard to win this tournament.”

Majozi said their winnings will assist the team to buy other soccer equipment. He praised his strikers for a great job. “They played as collective and our forwards were more clinical in front of the goals,” he stated.

Brian Matiwane, the event organiser, said the tournament was much better than the previous edition. “The standard was high,” he said. “All the 32 teams that participated in the tournament showed class. We hope that we will keep the momentum.”

Matiwane appealed to sponsors to come on board. “Our challenge is the sponsors. We need more sponsors to support us. The money that we gave for prizes is the money that we generated through entrance and joining fee.”
