Organized by the Embassy of Italy in Pretoria, the event was aimed at promoting the values of the sport and friendship within the primary schools of disadvantaged communities of the Province of Gauteng.

The Embassies of Italy, Austria, France, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom participated in the initiative, each of them “adopting” a school of Gauteng and supporting its soccer team.

Italy was represented by Pholosho School Alexandra, Austria by Ithuba Community College Johannesburg, France by Rebonwe Primary School Tembisa, Great Britain by Zithathele Primary School, Netherlands by Jafta Mahlangu Secondary School, Spain by St. Daniel Comboni, Ireland by Chipa Tabane Secondary School and Portugal by Robert Hicks Primary School Pretoria.

The Irish team represented by Chipa Thabane School won the tournament, while the Italian team won the ladies competition. In both cases the Austrians were the runners-up.  

Young photographers from the Rebonwe Primary School representing France who are participating in the “An Eye for An Eye” project also attended the event practicing their photographic skills.
