Furthermore, as reported by the Siya crew, Northern Cape MEC for Sports, Arts and Culture Bongiwe Mbinqo-Gigaba joined SAFA’s delegation in the finals of the U17 tourney. 

“The Solar Youth Cup is one of the biggest youth tournaments in the South African football calendar,” said Ms Ledwaba.

“It’s one of many success stories that have been birthed as a result of the SAFA’s partnership with LaLiga, and demonstrates the impact that the private sector can have in developing football.”

She further thanked the sponsors which she said have heeded the call to help advance football in all provinces of the country.

SAFA extends its gratitude to all the sponsors who by virtue of sponsoring this tournament are partners of SAFA. Thank you to the Sishen Solar Facility, Kathu Solar Park, Lesedi Power Project, Scatec Solar, Northern Cape Department of Sports, Arts and Culture, Economic Development Solution and Loago Sports SA,” she concluded.

SAFA’s executives were also joined by technical coaches such as U17 national coach Molefi Ntseki, development coach Arthur Zwane as well as SAFA Provincial Technical Officers Willem Klink.

Orion walked away with a whopping R100 000 in prize money after beating neighbours Olympics from Namaqua by 1-0.
