We have a vision to produce young players every season that will develop to become world-class players.

Football is our avenue to get the youths off the streets as well as using the medium to share our Cancer awareness message to the local people.

Our league avails ages 15-17+ male/female kids the opportunity to learn the skills of football and perhaps become professionals. “It has always been my vision to furnish the youths in Africa with opportunities, to enable them to achieve their dreams, and attain a sounder life.” Ronnie Jacobs

Cancer awareness in Africa needs to be built from the ground up, to help change the negative Cancer cultural beliefs.
