Ladysmith hosts Mini-World Cup
Over 96 teams from around the Island and 1000 participants will flood the valley with jerseys, cleats, and soccer balls for the Mini-World Cup, May 12–13.
Organizer Willow Hartig told SunFM News the town of Ladysmith has welcomed them with open arms and the event will be great for everyone involved.
“We have had great support from the town of Ladysmith and the local community, we’ve got the eagles, they are hosting a spaghetti dinner on Saturday night and they are doing a pancake breakfast for Sunday morning. And the town of Ladysmith has designated some camping space down at Transfer Beach for visiting teams.”
Hartig said to make it like the regular ‘world cup’ each team will be assigned a country to represent.
“All the different teams have been assigned a different country, and they are making up their own sort of parade gear, they will have flags and banners, there are kids coming out with blue hair, whatever they want to do to have their fun as well.”
They will even have a parade of nations like the Olympics during the opening ceremonies.
The tournament runs Sat. 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sun. 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
It is being held at seven different fields in Ladysmith with a trolley service running between all venues and fields to alleviate parking worries.
