The teams that managed to reach the quarter-final stage of the Vhembe Super Cup Tournament will parade in new colours. The ceremony during which the soccer kits were handed over to the teams was held at the Thohoyandou Arts and Crafts Centre on Tuesday afternoon.
During the ceremony, the general manager of Venda Football Academy (VFA), Mr Tenda Masikhwa, said that the sponsors were impressed by the way the tournament was being run. He assured the organisers that the club would continue to sponsor the tournament next year. He said that their decision to sponsor the tournament was influenced by the fact that they wanted to use the tournament as fertile ground to scout for young talent. VFA also aims to have local players in the majority within the team.
The quarter-final matches for the Vhembe Super Cup Tournament will be played at the Tshifudi Stadium on Sunday. The fixtures for Sunday’s matches are Berea FC vs Madridtas FC, United Artists vs Mashamba Soccer Academy, Tshikhwani Stone Breakers vs FC Basel and Masakona Young Tigers vs Maelula United Brothers.
