ABOUT 600 boys and girls comprising a total of 70 teams will gather at the Sisters of Mary Girlstown in the City of Talisay today for a futsal tournament which will serve as the culmination of
the 4-day Generation Amazing National Festival/SamaSama Games 2018.
The Sama-Sama Games is a sports and educational festival spearheaded by FundLife International since 2014 and advocates for greater inclusivity and opportunity for all, especially girls, through play.
The event kicked off last
December 6 with an educational and training seminar for 24 young leaders from underserved communities in Manila, Davao and Tacloban.
These young leaders will then complete the 70 teams in today’s futsal tournament which will have eight different categories from Under 7’s to Under 18’s with over 250 female players taking
Most of the teams are community-based such as the Kamagayan FC, Cubacub for Cubacub, Capitol-Giuseppe Football Club, Canduman FC, Balamban FC, Maslog, Guardian Strikers, Talisay Razkals, Abellana National School, Sisters of Mary Girlstown and Boystown and City Central School, among others.
