Locals play indoor soccer World Cup

The indoor soccer River Champions League in Eerste River hosted the semi-finals and final of their local indoor soccer World Cup tournament on Thursday 26 July at the Eerste River Multipurpose Centre.

The board of the league, established in 2015, decided to host the tournament in celebration of the recently internationally hosted World Cup tournament, says River Champions League (RCL) chairperson Annalene Hollaway.

“Sixteen teams participated, with each team adopting a country. We played matches throughout the weeks on Thursday evenings at the multipurpose centre until only four teams remained,” explains Hollaway.

The four teams, namely “France”, “Uruguay”, “Belgium” and “Croatia”, battled it out on Thursday 26 July.

“Belgium” and “Croatia” played in the final with “Belgium” taking home the cup.

“Both of the teams really brought it in the final. It was exciting and we were treated to high-quality soccer,” says Hollaway. Present at the tournament were Sheryl Esau from the Department of Social Development, ward 16 councillor Jerome Fitz and Ajax Cape Town player Taariq Losper.

Hollaway shares the best part of the tournament was seeing youngsters come together to play the game they love.

“Everyone was competitive and wanted to win that trophy. It was great seeing youth from different backgrounds come together to play.”

Hollaway shares the objective of the weekly league games is to keep local youngsters off the streets.

Next up for RCL is a Super Cup tournament which will take place on Thursdays from 19:00 to 22:00 at the Eerste River Multipurpose Centre.
