The third annual Street Soccer Classic tournament will be hosted by Swiftresponse Street Soccer at the Jubilee Park Sports Fields in Uitenhage on 3 & 5 October.
Local young and enthusiastic soccer players, girls and boys, are invited in team format to join the tournament which will be held during the forthcoming school holiday. Participation is free of charge.
What is different to the tournament this year is that it will be hosted in collaboration with Ursula Candasamy from Heaven’s Missing Angels.
“The purpose of the tournament is to build friendships, to unite and for the soccer players to enjoy the beautiful game of soccer,” said Ade Adekunle from Swiftsresponse Street Soccer Classic.
Last year’s tournament attracted approximately 190 young soccer players from the area. The organisers this year are preparing to accommodate 200 players. There will be categories for juniors and seniors and teams can consist of boys, girls or mixed teams.
The tournament will be held on 3 & 5 October at the Jubilee Sports Fields in Uitenhage. Registration (free) is at 08:30 on each day of play and participants will receive medals.
“It is not about winning or losing, but uniting through sport, bonding with new friends and enjoying the game. Discipline is important, but it is also important to have fun through sport,” said Adenkunle.
