3rd CAPE TOWN PEACE CUP

BACKGROUND INFO -

3rd ANNUAL CAPE TOWN PEACE CUP


The WEST CAPE SOCCA PLAYAS´ UNION runs regular meetings and specialised events like tournaments and coaching clinics.

We do this in support of formerly disadvantaged footballers to find a club or recognition in national as much as in international footballing scene.

We do this to improve Cape and lastly South African football . This is an urgent undertaking and supports our province´s push back into top of national game.

The WEST CAPE SOCCA UNION has been in operation for more than 7 years.

By inviting foreign playas who live in Cape Town, eg Somalis, Tanzanians, Malawians, Cameroonians, Zimbabweans etc, we aim at creating a meaningful platform for cultural mixing on the sports field.

This platform is surely missed in many other aspects of our social life, too.

Our 6aside CAPE TOWN PEACE CUP is now in its 3rd year and steers playas towards achieving their goals.

We got 2 trials for youth players at PSL club AJAX CAPE TOWN as prizes last year, and in 2009, the winning team, Khayelitsha United, stayed in a posh 5-star hotel for a weelend.
 
After experiencing a near-odyssee in finding suitable fields, the City of Cape Town stepped in and rented Shelly Rd field to us in 2010.
 
We played group games in the morning and went into knock-outs at 14.00hrs.

2009 holders, Khayelitsha Utd, lost the Cup in the opener when they were held 3-0 by City Centre Somalis.

The fierce and fast Somalis went on to beat African Stars, a mixed bag of Burundians, Senegalese, and Kenyans, captained by Omary Mwando, from Dar-Es-Salaam in Tanzania. Arthur Arakaza, the Stars goalie, went on to guard the posts for his home country, Burundi, in the 2012 CHAN tournament! Well done!

Honours went to Central City Somalis, thus becoming the first foreign team to take the coveted CAPE TOWN PEACE CUP.

In the Junior division, Khayelitsha retained their trophy, hosting joint best U-17 playas, namely Luando Motswana and Ongezi Abayo.

The PEACE CUP is played according to streetfootball rules, developed by CAPE.SOCCA.UNION members.

This year`s best playa award will be split into  <best overall performance>,  <best goal scorer> and <best goalie>.

The competition lives by sponsor input, and gives an excellent marketing platform for supportive businesses.

Our title sponsors were BAG IT, BARAN´S RESTAURANT and  LYRA´S in Rondebosch. More support came from FAROUK ABRAHAMS GOAL-KEEPING ACADEMY  and new MIMI´s in Obs.

We run a regular photo-blog, called SOUTHERN AFRICAN SPORTS AND NEWS REVIEW, giving sponsors plenty of exposure there, too. Over the years, we have built up a database of more than 3000 contacts in worlds of football, sports, marketing, media, business and tourism. For more go here:

NOT ALL PLAYAS  become manager or coach after their careers, and CAPE.SOCCA.UNION also assists members in gaining alternative job skills.

That`s why business support is double meaningful to us: It gives good exposure and marketing returns while at same time facilitating social and professional integration of playas, fans, officials, the media, etc..
