(Mthatha) – Bigger, better and promising loads of fun for both competitors and spectators, the exciting Fives Futbol roadshow hits the BT Ngebs City shopping centre in Mthatha on Sunday, October 1.
Social footballers are welcome to enter a five-person team for this no-fee tournament, which starts at 11am in the mall’s car park and ends at 3pm.
Games are contested by teams of five on pitches measuring 22 metres by 12 metres and each game lasts for just five minutes. The winner of each game goes on to play against the next team on the fixture list. The overall winning team will be the one with the longest unbeaten streak and will receive the grand prize of R5 000 worth of Debonairs Pizza vouchers.
Teams that are eliminated can register to play again during the four-hour tournament.
General manager Lolo Sabisa said BT Ngebs City was delighted to welcome the roadshow back to Mthatha, after hosting the event for the first time last year.
“Five-a-side football is the fastest growing form of football worldwide. A great atmosphere is guaranteed at this family fun day, with entertainment also laid on for spectators.
“Not only will there be exciting displays of fast-paced football, but there will also be music, Debonairs Pizza give-aways – and of course a chance to refuel at our food court.”
While the tournament is primarily aimed at over-16s, younger players are not excluded and can enjoy some pitch time before the main event gets under way.
