Go4word was proud to be involved in the City of Cape Town, in partnership with SAFA Cape Town and the Western Cape Government will be hosting the 8 Nation under 20 International Football Challenge.

The tournament took place from the 25 May – 03 June 2012 at both the Athlone and Cape Town Stadiums. The tournament also utilised various practise venues throughout the City.

The bi-annual tournament was also being hosted for the second time, after a successful inauguration tournament in 2010, prior to the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

The football tournament was a welcome addition to the City’s calendar of major sports events which currently include the Pick ‘n Pay/ Cape Argus Cycle Tour and Old Mutual Town Oceans marathon.

All of these sports tournaments are hosted in line with the City of Cape Towns administration’s goal of  establishing Cape Town as the events capital of the continent.  This competition was a springboard for many youngsters, both local and international, to launch their successful professional football careers.

The event was attended by local football fans who came and supported the matches to watch first hand the next generation of football superstars compete for the championship. Some of the youngsters in this tournament went on to represent their countries in future international competitions.

In support of the City’s volunteer programme, the City also made use of 150 dedicated volunteers who assisted in the efficient and coordinated success of the event. The City’s successful volunteer programme is designed to foster the ideals of volunteerism within the respective communities.
