It’s thrilling that after all the waiting, finally, the time is here for our youngsters to get to enjoy the same privileges that even people like us went through in our junior academies before.

Grassroots football is a very important part of the survival of football, we have all come through the system of being afforded chances at an early stage and it is befitting that we continue the tradition of supporting grassroots sports.

We appreciate the approval from the custodians of football and it is our hope that this tournament will raise the curtain to the commencement of junior football in the country, this will be a stepping stone to a COVID-19 complying football era.

Teams participating in the tournament are coming from all over Zimbabwe.
