I am in desperate need of a kombi/bus type vehicle to transport players on a daily basis as many of my players parents do not have transport or the funds for transport to get their boys to and from soccer practice and matches.
The team has been together for 3 years and the entire team is focused on becoming Professional Soccer players, all the boys are between the ages of 8 and 12 years old. Currently I am using my personal vehicle (Citroen C3) which is way to small and dilapidated to transport all my players at once and I always have to make more than a couple trips to collect boys from school and take them back home after their training or games. Majority of my players being disadvantaged youngsters from rural areas that can hardly afford a pair of boots.
Our daily routine starts once the boys have finished school, I collect them from different schools around Durban, South Africa, take them home with me to have lunch, complete their homework and then off to the soccer fields for training, once training or matches are complete I then take boys home or to the taxi rank in order for them to commute home, this is an extremely difficult task as I am only able to transport a certain number of boys at a time as my car is very small, making at least 3 trips back and forth.
I am extremely passionate about my boys and what they have achieved thus far, last season we only lost one match the entire year. These boys played U11 last year going as far as beating teams 2-3 years older than them, U13/14 which is a fantastic achievement. A couple of my boys have already been spotted by scouts, offering them future possible opportunities at professional clubs in South Africa when they come of age.
Breakdown of how funds will be used:
The funds would be required immediately as we have already started preparing for the season and year ahead, we are already in full swing and transport is no doubt a daily concern and major stress.
I am also looking at taking this team on an International Tour after our season concludes, therefore if any of the funds are left over, I will put the remaining funds towards the tour.
If you are passionate about these boys and the game as I am, you would go to great leghths in making young boys dreams come true. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated and in return I will upload plenty pictures of how we progress throughout the year and years ahead, as well as pictures of the vehicle purchase and equipment as we get funds in. I am able to offer any potential sponsor a ROI in the form of Advertisement Boards at our Home Grounds in Riverside Durban, sponsors logos on the Kombi/Bus as well as on the training and match kits, kitbags, tracksuits etc.......
I am available to discuss any possible sponsorship/donation opportunities and should you wish to discuss the matter, please feel free to contact me at any time.
Thank You in Advance
