Steve Sekano Foundation to host u13 tournament at Fiat Sports Centre

The Steve Sekano Foundation will be hosting an u13 football tournament on the 9th of December at the Fiat Sports Centre in Meadowlands Zone 9, with eight teams featuring in a playoff.

The on-field action kicks off at 09:00.

Sekano, who turned out for Orlando Pirates, Moroka Swallows, Jomo Cosmos, Cape Town Spurs and Spartak FC during his professional career, will be on hand to oversee the action and to hand out pre-loved football boots and school shoes to needy children.

Sekano’s Foundation, which was founded six years ago, aims to uplift the local community through football and netball.

In 2022, South African football legends’ Lucas Radebe, Linda Buthelezi, Ronnie Zondi and Tebogo Moloi attended the finals of his eponymous sports tournament.

Unfortunately, the Steve Sekano Foundation u17 Sports Tournament, which had taken place since 2017, over the course of three days, incorporating 16 boys’ teams, eight girls’ teams, and eight netball teams, will not be held this year due to a sponsorship that has fallen through.

Previously, the event drew considerable backing, including kits for all of the teams, plus an additional kit for the finalists.

Catering was provided for the participants and R10 000 went to the winners, with the runners-up receiving R5 000.

In addition, food parcels were distributed to pensioners on the last day of the tournament.
