The AmaZulu Community Trust and Hollywoodbets have rolled up the red carpet this weekend as 16 SAFA affiliated teams get set to do battle this weekend in the Hollywoodbets Siyakhula U15 Cup which is scheduled to played on 30-31 July.
The tournament will be played at the Tills Crescent Sports Ground in Durban. The winner stands a chance to collect a R10 000 cheque that will go towards sports equipment which will be complimented by a Hollywoodbets sponsored match kit for both finalists.
The player of the tournament will be rewarded with the opportunity to travel to Gauteng to participate in a LaLiga training clinic.
AmaZulu Community Trust Programs Manager, Mpho Dintwa has applauded the continued commitment towards building development football by Hollywoodbets.
“This is a growing project obviously, but one thing for sure, interest from the Ethekwini SAFA region and teams is immense.”
“When we started the Hollywoodbets Siyakhula U15 Cup last year we obviously couldn’t have fans or the parents coming out, but things are different this time around. They are all invited and welcome now.”
“Hollywoodbets are doing a great job in partnering with us to give youngsters a platform to showcase their talent,” said Dintwa.
Hollywoodbets Operations Executive, Sandisiwe Bhengu expressed great delight in their continued support of assisting budding players.
“We encourage our youngsters to get involved in football and sport in their young age. With the Siyakhula Cup we want to nurture future prospects and in the future come back and say we made it possible, for our communities and youngsters to harness their skills,” said Bhengu.
The matches will be played over to days in a round-robin format. Last year’s tournament was won by AmaZulu after they defeated Village Boys FC 3-0.
