DreamClub100 has proven to be the most inclusive and comprehensive community development structure in South African football. With the vision of uplifting youth football in the football loving City of Cape Town on a large scale – DreamClub100 creates a platform for players to go from the streets of township football to the dream of a professional career. The DreamClub 100 programme is the fuel to the burning desire of the football loving youth in Cape Town!
The DreamClub100 affiliates 100 local amateur football clubs with Cape Town City FC. These satellite clubs receive professional coaching of their coaches, coaching of their players, kit and equipment to uplift their structures – all building stronger relationships and development structures between local community clubs and Cape Town City FC.
The key feature of the annual DreamClub100 will once again be the Elite 16-team DreamClub tournament, which takes place at the end of the programme calendar, from which 20 players will be selected into the Cape Town City FC Elite Academy. This tournament will be run exclusively for the 100 selected satellite clubs and offers a direct path for talented football players to achieve their professional dreams. The 20 players selected at the end of the 2017 DreamClub 100 programme have commenced their training as part of CTCFC with our UEFA A Licensed coach, Justin Hamburger.
“Congratulations to the 59 Coaches who we put through the SAFA D License as well as to all the players who excelled in our elite training sessions and to those who were selected at the conclusion of the DreamClub Tournament. We look forward to continue working with these ” – DreamClub 100 co-ordinator, Justin Hamburger.
“I am overwhelmed and delighted with the success of launching the DreamClub identity within six months of bringing a new PSL franchise to the Mother City. In 2018 we will continue to work with full cooperation and support from SAFA Cape Town to ensure young players’ football dreams can be converted into reality. It has already been proven by your support at PSL matches that the community is identifying with Cape Town City FC as the City’s flagship PSL team, truly built by Capetonians. We will continue to provide exclusive ticket incentives for all the members at the DreamClub affiliated teams.” – Cape Town City FC Chairman, John Comitis.
Applications for the 2018 DreamClub 100 programme is open for all SAFA Cape Town Affiliated Clubs. Go to our website www.capetowncityfc.co.za for more information.
