Year after year, the participation of South African teams in the Donosti Cup has grown gradually. Last summer, we had four teams from two different clubs: the Wanderers Warriors from Johannesburg and the Randburg from Randburg a town close to the capital.
This year, on the 25th anniversary of the Donosti Cup, we can already guarantee the participation of teams from this country located 11,840 kilometres away from San Sebastian.
The Rand Central LFA will participate in the tournament for the first time with 4 boy’s teams -U11, U12, U13 and U14- and one girls team, -G16-. This is going to be the first girls’ team from South Africa in the history of the Donosti Cup.
In total, around 100 people will come some days earlier to the tournament to get used to the city, to have some training sessions and to play friendly matches also.
We hope to have more South African teams because we have several clubs already interested in participating in the 2016 Donosti Cup 2016 and they could confirm their participation soon.
The Donosti Cup wants to give a warm welcome to Rand Central LFA.
