Good day,I am Angelo Lakey. My younger brother,Alexandro lakey has been selected to participate in the GOTHIA youth world cup in Sweden during July 2020.We have created this page on backabuddy in order to raise funds for his trip. Alex is 13 years old and lives in Hanover Park, Cape Town.He is a grade 6 learner and attends York road primary school.After completing the trials, he has been selected to play in the soccer tournament .We hope to raise the required funds as our goal is to fulfill Alex desire to go and play in this tournament.


We have been notified of his selection in November 2019 and have been given the chance to pay the fees in monthly installments. Therefore, with your help we can raise the required amount by May 2020.


Upon reaching our target, Alexandro will be able to go and participate in the tournament which is his life long dream to play abroad. He will be on an airplane for the first time too. Going to Sweden will allow Alex to showcase his talent in front of a huge crowd with many scouts watching.He will play with individuals from across the globe and will learn about different cultures.Alex will use this tournament as a platform to test his skills and abilities and ultimately create an opportunity to kick start his soccer career. Alex will have the opportunity which only comes around once in a life time. One of Alex main challenges is his academics and he therefore hopes to pursue a career in soccer.


The funds that are raised will go towards Alex's trip to Sweden. The total cost of the trip is R40 000 which includes: 

  • Air ticket
  • Travel insurance
  • Accommodation
  • Tournament fees
  • Internal transport
  • Excursion and clothing
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Funds raised will be paid directly to the relevant institution.
