Soccer is viewed by many as a major sporting event in the world. The game of football has resulted to skills development in many nations across the globe and has contributed in enriching individuals. Besides, sport in general and football in particular have emerged as a single unifying factor, even in the moment of political, ethnic and socio-religious tension and feuds. Nations across the world have united behind this game. Football has bridged racial divide and brought people of other nation into a union of oneness.
Most youths are ready to defy some of the challenges prevailing in the world today such as unemployment and economic hardship, which has reduced them to the level of desperation. Most of them have given up hopes and have buried their talents and indulge in activities such as drug abuse, prostitution, gangsterism and banditry. It can therefore not be argued that idleness breeds crime and other numerous malpractices that can only lead to the destruction of individuals and their communities.
Mbhekwana Sporting Club has come to realize that in partnership with the Government as well as other stakeholders, young people can be given a chance of making it in life through sports. The founders and promoters of M.S.C equally believe that young people are rough diamond whom if well-polished shall shine for the whole of humanity.
