Kick off Amecet cup tournament in Soroti

Who would not like to win this beautiful trophy, it is the Amecet cup, the prize for the winner of our soccer tournament in Soroti town. This tournament is organised by Elias, (his picture is here below)
He is an old friend of Amecet, He has been working with us many times and is also a fervent soccer player. It is a big tournament with 20 teams participating. It is organised because of our 10 year anniversary in Dec. We have several things coming up and this tournament is one of them. We wanted to do something in and for the community, we are also building a playgarden for the children of Soroti. To give it as a gift to the community of Soroti. Soccer is a favorite sport in Uganda, It was amazing how many teams there are in Soroti. teams are formed from the working place ( there is a team from car mecanics) and there are teams from the neighbourhoods. Today was the kick off and we started with a (joker) team from Amecet/YWAM which would play 2 x 10 minutes with a participating lady team. On the picture below you can see our team. We had never practised and some met for the first time. But it was fun and they played 0-0, so that was good.
Then we had the official kick off, I had to say something about the anniversary and then greet the teams and then Catherine would do the kick off, but it was confusing so Helen ended up to do the kick!
It was a nice atmosphere and we hope that people will enjoy the games, in playing and in watching! Th e big final is on December 17th, the winner will receive the trophy and a bull!
