Sporting Chance Street Sports Champions’ Trophies

Street sport would be incomplete without football. Seen here is Masiphumeleles Siyamthanda Koni and Lilitha Makunga in action.

The streets of Masiphumelele were abuzz when 15 teams from disadvantaged communities around Cape Town competed for the coveted Sporting Chance Street Sports Champions’ Trophies. For the past seven weeks, hundreds of pupils from Masiphumelele, Khayelitsha and Langa have taken to the streets, to compete in matches covering three sports codes – cricket, soccer and, for the first time introduced this year, netball.
