“KwaMahlobo tournament is about more than just identifying about football talent it’s also about bringing the festive cheer to Soweto. It’s about giving the youth something positive to do during the holidays and we are honoured that La Liga has seen the value of investing in this philosophy,” said SAFA’s head of Communications Dominic Chimhavi to Soccer Laduma.
“What is more special this year is that both Mr Tebas and Dr Jordaan will be in attendance to witness for themselves the talent on display and the festive euphoria that this tournament generates for the communities of Meadowlands and other surrounding areas,” added Chimhavi.
