Who is going to the world cup!!??

Post by wcchallenge » Tue Apr 13, 2010 7:40 pm

WE ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TRAVELLING TO THE WORLD CUP!!

If you are, or if you know anybody who is, maybe you can help us...

We are organising a 5-a-SIDE FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT taking place in or near Cape Town during the World Cup, to raise money for the Starfish Greathearts Foundation (http://www.starfishcharity.org).

Starfish work to provide a future for children in South Africa who have been orphaned and made vulnerable by the AIDS epidemic - it is a huge problem in that country and they need support in the good work that they do.

The more players and teams we can get to play, the more money we can generate from sponsors! If you are travelling in small numbers, we can help put you together with others to form teams - email us:

info@theworldcupchallenge.com

http://www.theworldcupchallenge.com

Full details of our charity scheme can be found on our website, where we will provide updates such as tournament date and schedule, as soon as they are confirmed...

Please help spread the word by joining our facebook group and inviting your friends:

It is one of the best ways we can reach people who will be travelling to South Africa. We will have local teams but we would LOVE to find international travellers who can form teams to represent their nations!!

We are a couple of guys from Edinburgh, Scotland, and we decided to organise this fundraiser when we ended up with too many World Cup tickets...

We are going on a group holiday to South Africa and all of us applied for tickets, and asked friends to apply on our behalf... we were more successful than we expected and had a problem-- because it is difficult to resell tickets legitimately.

We decided instead that we should give the tickets away to underprivileged children in the local area, kids who would never dream of having the opportunity to witness such a spectacle.

This led to the idea to stage a small tournament to raise money (and we will be running a tournament for local kids at the same time!)... We only started this in February, with very little time to organise the event, and from 10,000km away!

The challenge is on!
