Teams gear up for Snekeneke cup

32 teams are gearing up for the official start of the annual Snekeneke Cup, with throngs of fans and residents feeling the excitement.

Teams from various townships in and around Gauteng will be battling out to see who reigns supreme in what is fast becoming Kasi football’s most popular event.

The matches will only be played on weekends and strictly on a knockout basis from the onset.

Tournament co-founder Tshediso Leshaba stated that some people wanted to be part of this project because of money. “It’s about giving back to the community of Snake Park.

The football tournament is more expensive than the money involved. It is also intended to address several issues that deal with social cohesion and the upliftment of the local community.

Last year’s winner, Tsalanang Football Club, is determined to defend their title.

The tournament is expected to continue attracting various football scouts from professional teams around the country.

This year’s champions will walk away with R220,000, a soccer kit, and gold medals. The runners-up will pocket R100,000, a soccer kit, and silver medals. A cash prize of R10.000 awaits the team that finishes in the third and fourth spots, respectively.

The opening matches will be played on Saturday, October 28, while the semi-finals and finals are scheduled for Sunday, November 19th. All matches will be played at the Doornkop grounds in Snake Park.
