South African Embassy in Manila supports Ambassador's Cup

The Center for Research and Communication of the University of Asia and the Pacific (CRC-UA&P) in cooperation with the Philippine Football Federation and eleven foreign Embassies, of which South Africa was one, launched the Ambassador’s Cup Grassroots Football Project on 28 February 2014 at the Telengtan Hall in UA& P in Pasig City in the Philippines. Aside from South Africa, the other Embassies which are supporting this initiative are Chile, Timor Leste, South Korea, United Kingdom, Nigeria, Indonesia, Canada, Mexico, United States of America, and Turkey.  Each Embassy adopted a community from different underprivileged areas.


Competition kick-off with Mr. Mariano Araneta of PFF, Dr. Bernardo Villegas of UA& P and Dr. Jose Maria Mariano of UA& P

The objective of this event is to harness the power of football to unite persons, communities, countries and the media in furthering inclusive and integral human development.  For the targeted youth, it is expected that soccer will inculcate discipline and teamwork.  In this regard, the Embassy adopted underprivileged youth from San Ildelfonso Community in Makati City.  

The Embassy is supporting this initiative because it will instill the love for soccer and also give the opportunity for South African students to teach the youth about South Africa thereby imparting knowledge and sharing our culture.  It is expected that this project will culminate in the final competition between the various Embassy- sponsored teams on 4 May, 2014 in UA& P in Pasig City.  The Embassy is of course rooting for the South Africa team to win this tournament.  So the game is on!
