Mabuyu and Yusuf, who emerged best player and top scorer respectively in last year’s Copa Coca-Cola national finals, will join other Copa Coca-Cola players from across the world to participate in the six-day camp and have a once in a life time opportunity to attend the 2014 FIFA World Cup opening ceremony.
According to the programme, the camp features a well-balanced mixture of football activities and entertaining diversions aimed at enhancing the youngsters’ football skills and experience. The camp brings together young people to both learn new skills -- in a first-class football atmosphere -- and form personal bonds.
“The Coca-Cola camp invites youths from different backgrounds to share their mutual passion for football in a positive manner,” said Coca-Cola Tanzania country manager Yebeltal Getachew.
“They will study sideby- side and practice modern techniques demonstrated by the game’s experts, while also making new friends and immersing themselves in the culture of a country acknowledged around the world as one of the true, historical hotbeds of football,” he added.
The sports programme culminates with an intramural friendly tournament of mixed squads of camp players from the various countries, with an emphasis on cultural exchange and fair play.
Coca-Cola Tanzania in collaboration with the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) also made a draw for the teams that will take part in a knock-out tournament that will be held in Dar es Salaam at the weekend to select best players who will represent Tanzania at this year’s annual Copa Coca-Cola international tournament in South Africa.
