AFTER 11 schools confirmed their availability, Build it will host a must-watch U13 soccer tournament which will take place at Ndlovini in Gidana Stadium on Saturday.
Following a well-attended meeting at Build it on Saturday morning, project manager Monwabisi Jaza confirmed the tournament would go ahead.
With the mission of giving back to the community, Build it is giving Ndlambe schools an opportunity to participate in a tournament that will see the winning school walk away with a major trophy and three-piece kit.
Jaza said there will be prizes for the winning school and runner-up. Each player from the two finalist teams will get a bag and trophy.
“The player of the tournament will get a sports bag, ball, trophy, vuvuzela and R500 voucher from Build it,” he added.
“We urge parents and the community at large to come in numbers to support the children. The most supported school will get a voucher of R2,500 from Build it.”
Echoing formal invitations which were sent on Tuesday, Jaza said: “We invite Ndlambe Municipality, the Department of Education and Department of Sport and Recreation to be part of this tournament.”
“Our objective is to appreciate our loyal customers by giving back. We believe that giving back through schools benefits the community at large. As Build it we believe that this tournament will be a stepping stone to greater opportunities for these youngsters.”
The schools will meet at Port Alfred Build it on Albany Road at 7.30am and march to the sports field.
Jaza added that the winning team will proceed to the zonal playoffs.
