Gra­ham­stown hosted the in­au­gu­ral New Year's Cup soc­cer tour­na­ment from 16 to 31 De­cem­ber. A to­tal of 32 teams de­scended on Gra­ham­stown for the group stages of the tour­na­ment. This num­ber went down to 16, be­fore the quater­fi­nals, semi-fi­nals and even­tu­ally the fi­nals. Gra­ham­stown-based Makana Rhini United (green tops) and Amavarara, from Queen­stown, were both un­beaten as they made their way to the fi­nals. It was the home side, with a bit of luck on their side, that man­aged to find the win­ning goal, against the run of play.
