The SATUC World Cup is a new 5 a side football tournament for teams of 14 and 15-year-old boys from at least ten different nations. The sides will consist of boys who have experienced a wide range of disadvantage or poverty in their lives and who, in many cases, are orphans or war refugees.
This is about more than three tournaments; we are keen to ensure that the legacy of the SATUC Cup is a lasting one for all the teams. In each of the participating countries, we are partnering with a charity or organisation, which seeks to help children and their development.
