Thembalethu Foundation representative in Zimbabwe Busani Mpofu, who is also the Baobab Rovers FC chairman, outlined the intentions of the group.

"Our intention is to promote soccer in remote areas aimed at empowering young people to explore their talents. There is a lot of untapped talent here hence we have decided to come up with his tournament, which will now become an annual event," said Mpofu.

"Next year we will include girls as we seek to have a bigger and better tournament. The foundation has in the past organised matches in areas like Filabusi and Bulawayo."

Hwange district education officer Lovemore Ncube urged young footballers to take up sport, in particular football, seriously.

"This is the beginning of a great future for you in sports. Many footballers worldwide are living comfortably from this game because they were serious and dedicated hence I urge you to train hard and open doors for yourselves in the future." he said.
