Organised by Papadi Integrated Marketing, who are running their 15th event over an 8 year period, this "football carnival" was viewed as the communities biggest festival of the year.

The Ga Makausi camp is home to 38 000 people and 2 yrs ago was at the forefront of the xenephobia crisis – and 13 people lost their lives here. The tournament was fantastically supported and characterised by large well-behaved crowds and had the community involved in all aspects of the arrangements.

The 16 open men teams, who all came from the camp, played for large prize-money as well as assessories includings kit, balls and trophies.

Apart from the open men football, there were variety of other games including a" Tsheve" memorial game between the "Masters" and the local football media team (Fat Cats), a "Goggo’s" (Old Ladies) game as well as a local ladies and an under 15 game.

A true highlight of the "festival of fun" was the various cultural displays from the Pedi’s, Shangaans, Zulu’s as well as some local choirs.

A little "Miss Skwata Camp" under 10 girls beauty pageant was held together with a presentation to the local orphange.

Soccer luminaries such as Papadi’s football ambassador, Teenage Dladla and Shakes Kungwane attended as did some representatives from Moroka Swallows and Black Aces.

SABC "Soccerzone" covered the highlights.
