FC Real’s team consists of 17 talented players. Many of these players have never been overseas or in a plane before. The club needs R480 000 to send the full team, reserves and two coaches to the tournament.

“Many of the players are underprivileged, so this is such a major opportunity and great exposure for them,” said fundraising mom, Celest Butler.

The club will be hosting a fundraiser on 14 October. For more details, contact fundraising managers, Natalie Solomons on 072 609 5301 or Celest Butler on 071 602 1895.
