The club will donate football kits and equipment to the local children’s teams and will also provide stern training and advice that will help equip the children to succeed in the international football industry.

They visited Robben Island yesterday (Sunday) and the team's Sports Board member, Fredi Bobic, had this to say through a press statement released by the club."The players will mature through these experiences."

Team captain Christian Gentner added: "It is not so often that you come to Cape Town, that is why the team can widen their horizons here and they have a welcome change to all the training units at the training camp."

This trip should also be special for the African players in the VfB Stuttgart squad. In this vain Ivory Coast international Arthur Boka said: "I am very happy that we have come to South Africa for our training camp. It should show the people in Europe that you can also prepare very well here."

In the meantime, the preparations on the pitch have gone very well for Die Roten. After winning their first friendly match against Vasco da Gama 5-0 last Thursday, Thomas Schneider’s team also won their second game beating Kamohelo Mokotjo's Dutch First Division side PEC Zwolle, 4-1. The VfB goals were scored by Bosnian World Cup participant Vedad Ibisevic, Mohammed Abdellaoue (x2) and Martin Harnik.

Tomorrow they lock horns in their third friendly match against Ajax Cape Town.

Action is set to get underway at 18h30 at the Philippi Stadium.
