Gaxa Cup Begins Today

KwaMashu will be buzzing with excitement as the annual Gaxa Cup starts today in Durban. The U19 tournament is the brainchild of Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana right-back, Siboniso Gaxa. It’s an initiative he started to give back to the game that has given him so many amazing and wonderful opportunities in life.

32 teams will take part in the action, beginning this afternoon in KwaMashu. The tournament will culminate with a final on June 30 at the Princess Magogo Stadium. Gaxa, who has close to 50 caps for Bafana, opened up to Chiefs’ official website about why the event means so much to him.

He said “It is strictly an U19 tournament. The objective is to offer the youngsters an opportunity to showcase their skills. It’s also good for them to see someone from their community organising such an initiative so that when they are CEO’s tomorrow, they don’t forget about their roots and giving back to the community that supported them.

“There will be scouts there during the tournament and hopefully a couple of players get an opportunity to play at the highest level. I feel fortunate I was able to fulfil my dream of playing for Bafana Bafana, then in Europe (with Lierse in Belgium), and now back playing at Chiefs. The youngsters can also achieve this, it is not impossible.”

 

Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will clash on July 27, with the title of 2013 Carling Black Label Cup champions up for grabs.
