Get Callum to the 2020 Manchester Cup

Get Callum to the 2020 Manchester Cup

Personal message

My son Callum has been playing for Stephanian Ottery FC since the age of 6 years old. His team, Stephanian Ottery FC, has been invited to participate in the 2020 Manchester Cup. The tournament is a stage for teams from around the world to come and perform in front of English Premier League scouts, all looking to find the future stars of the game. This is an absolute dream come true, and to have THIS dream realised at the tender age of 10 is just mind blowing.

This is an opportunity for these boys from the Cape Flats to get a taste of the great big world outside of the Cape Flats, Cape Town and South Africa. There are 21 boys in the touring squad, the majority of whom have never been on an aeroplane before. It is an opportunity for them to have fun and play soccer on a global stage, meet and make friends from other countries and create memories that will be with them and inspire them for the rest of their lives.

Our personal circumstances and life experiences sometimes delay the realisation of these dreams and sadly in some unfortunate situations, it completely erases them. We, the parents and coaches of these amazing and talented boys, carry their hopes and dreams together with the heavy financial burden of needing to raise the funds needed to cover the cost of the tour; transport, accommodation, game kit, etc.


The realisation of a dream is indeed priceless but the journey to get there is unfortunately not. It is with this in mind that we embark on a BackaBuddy campaign for each of the boys to raise sufficient funds and guarantee that all 21 boys board the plane and allow this amazing possibility to unfold into the phenomenal, life changing opportunity that it will be. We appeal to you for any contribution, no matter how small as anything and everything will be appreciated. Take this opportunity to contribute to and be a part of this journey by helping us make this dream come true!
