Johannesburg Secondary School claim the 2015 Future Champions Gauteng Schools Cup title

Johannesburg Secondary School were crowned Future Champions Gauteng Schools Cup winners when they defeated rivals Rosina Sedibane 1-0 in the final on Saturday (31 January 2015).

Samuel Magane scored the decisive goal in the decider after a thrilling day of action that saw 16 schools from around the Province battled it out for the honours.

The two finalists, along with Lawley Secondary and the Sports School of Excellence, now qualify for the Future Champions Gauteng Cup that will be played on 1st March at the Isak Steyl Stadium in the Vaal, the second step on the road to the prestigious Future Champions Gauteng International competition.

Lawley emerged top of Pool A in a tightly contested group, sealing their position with a 2-0 victory over Lamola Secondary.

Rosina Sedibane, previous winners of the Schools Cup, topped Pool B as they went through the group stage unbeaten.

Mohloli Secondary topped Pool C, but were subsequently eliminated from the competition due to their failure to follow the SASFA administrative process.

They were replaced in the semi-finals by Johannesburg Secondary, who had finished second.

The Sports School of Excellence, who have enjoyed success in this tournament before, finished top of Group D.

They came up against Rosina Sedibane in the last 4 in a game that finished 0-0 after a tense battle, with Rosina winning 5-3 on penalties.

The second semi-final saw Johannesburg Secondary beat Lawley Secondary 2-1 in another tight match. Sam Maseka and Katlego Mtwisha scored for Jo’burg Secondary, with Tshepiso Skhosana getting a consolation for Lawley.

That set up a mouth-watering final between Jo’burg Secondary and Rosina Sedibane, which was ultimately decided by Magane’s fine goal.

The four semi-finalists from the Gauteng Cup competition in March will win their place in the Future Champions Gauteng International Tournament that will feature some of the top Under-17 sides from around the world, to be played at the Nike Football Training Centre from 23 – 28 March 2015.

  • We had a wonderful football and cultural experience in Gauteng. The tournament and activities were very well organized and we found everyone involved extremely helpful and accommodating. We have all returned home with fantastic memories of our time in South Africa, both on and off the pitch, and have made many new friends as a result of the trip. I hope that we are invited to participate in future tournaments.

    Everton Academy Head Coach
  • The experience both on and off the field for our players during the Future Champions tournament in Gauteng was life-enriching for all those who participated. We were privileged enough to win this edition but what will be bringing us back in future is the cross-cultural education our players receive from spending time with athletes from all over the world. They are human beings before they are football players and enriching them with other cultures is as rewarding as the experience they receive on the field.

    Club Tijuana Director of Football
  • After twenty years of experiencing tournaments around the globe, Future Champions is hands down the best organized, well run International Tournament we have ever participated in. Bringing teams from dozens of different countries provided our boys exposure to cultural diversity they only read about in textbooks. It’s amazing how sport can be the cultural link that provides the opportunity to interact with each other and discover that our global community is a bit smaller than they realized. We had a football and cultural experience that will be cherished for the rest of our lives.

    Director of USYSA Select
  • For us to compete in Future Champions is much more than playing a series of matches. It is an opportunity to compete and contrast our level against the best teams from around the world and the possibility of living in another culture and environment for an unforgettable week, learning about the history of the fight for human rights.

    Director of Aspire Academy
  • The addition of a girls’ competition this year is a natural expansion for what has become a hugely popular event. Over and above the football, the players are also exposed to life-skills courses and HIV/AIDS awareness that could end up saving their lives in the future. We have had an amazing partnership with the Gauteng Province over the last decade and we thank each and every stakeholder for making the Future Champions Gauteng campaign such a huge success
