Celebrating success at the VRCID Homeless Soccer League Tournament

The VRCID Homeless Soccer League recently hosted an exciting tournament that brought together shelters and organizations from the local community for a day of spirited competition. This remarkable event saw teams from MES, U-Turn, VRCID PEP team, Bellville Haven, Sultan Bahu, Elim Night Shelter, Kraaifontein Haven and the Securitas Cleaning Team competing fiercely for glory. In the end, the tournament crowned its champions, with the Sultan Bahu Team emerging victorious in both the men’s and women’s finals, and U-Turn securing the runner-up spot.

The VRCID Homeless Soccer League Tournament is a shining example of how sports can unite communities and foster a sense of camaraderie among diverse groups. It’s an occasion where participants not only showcase their skills on the soccer field, but also come together to celebrate the spirit of togetherness.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped make this event a resounding success. It wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors and the dedication of our organizing team.  Special thanks to Oasis Brackenfell, Greater Tygerberg Partnership, VRCID, Securitas, Bellville Haven, MES and Safe2Park for their unwavering support.

The VRCID Social Team deserves a standing ovation for their impeccable planning and execution of the tournament. Their commitment to bringing the community together through football is truly commendable.

A special mention goes to Allistair Scholtz, whose vision and passion led to the creation of the VRCID Homeless Soccer League. This league has not only created opportunities for the homeless, but has also demonstrated the power of sports to create positive change in our community.

We’d like to express our deep appreciation to Vijen Rugbeer for sponsoring the medals that will forever serve as a token of achievement for the players. In addition, we would like to thank Sergio and Garry from Kwantu Solutions for their generous sponsorship of apparel and trophies, which added an extra layer of prestige to the event.

The VRCID Homeless Soccer League tournament was not just about soccer; it was about community, unity, and the power of coming together for a common cause. We look forward to even greater accomplishments and continued collaboration in the future. Thank you to everyone who participated in this memorable event. Together, we’ve shown that when we unite, incredible things can happen on and off the field.
