Hello Weekenders, the sunny days have arrived, and outdoor events are catching up, so take your pick for this weekend.

The 2018 Kapstadt Cup, Cape Town’s premier grassroots football festival, is happening over the next three days at Hartleyvale Stadium.

Kicking off today, the opening ceremony will be held tonight where Ready D, Khris Njokwana and Jimmy Nevis will perform.

This year, 22 clubs making up 80 teams and a total of 800 players will go head-to-head in the U7 to U13 age categories.

This is a first for Cape Town grassroots football and organisers are hoping it evolves into an international club competition.
