The Kusasa Stars project will see two of their teams travelling from the Western Cape to Sweden to partake in the upcoming 2019 Gothia Cup.
Kusasa Stars is a project that involves using football to promote education of disadvantaged children in Groendal, Langrug, Franschhoek and the Western Cape.
Former Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper, Sean Roberts, who is involved in organising the tour, revealed that this is their second year that they have been invited by the Gothia foundation to bring 25 young players to the tournament that will take place in July.
“It has always been a dream and ambition of mine to be involved in something like this, where we can change even one life that makes the world of difference,” Roberts told the Siya crew.
“But to give these guys an opportunity, a 100% of them have never been in a plane and 80% of them have never seen table mountain from Franschoek, so it is absolutely amazing what they are about to experience going to Sweden.
“For myself, I have been on plenty of these tours as a junior and I know how eye-opening it can be especially the Gothia Cup where it is 100s of teams from all over the world.
“For them walking out of the stadium and seeing thousands of people, it is just going to be an absolute game-changer for them to see what is out there.
You never know we could have the next Lucas Radebe or Steven Pienaar in and amongst us in this group of boys,” he added.
