Hansel Media will be organizing a soccer match for development on the 27th of August at the University of Buea stadium. This match is to raise awareness on the difficulties faced by Cameroon youths that hinder their personal and collective growth in the technological, cultural, educational, social and health domains.
The match will pit Cameroon entertainers versus Star Veterans, a home based soccer team. Entertainers will have to create a lineup to be announced later and will see a host of dignitaries gracing the event. Interested entertainers should contact the organizers so that provisions are made in time.
Already, a number of entertainers have begun sending in their information as well as their jersey numbers (big shock). The general public is invited to come and witness this iconic event and help generate buzz for development. Prizes will be given in the following categories:
• Best player
• Most disciplined player
• Best fan club
Any form of support or donations is appreciated. Let’s save the date!
