The chairperson of the organising committee, Mr Albert Malisha, appealed to businesspeople to get involved in promoting local activities. He emphasised during the ceremony the importance of education and said that sports people must not neglect their studies.
Rabali Pull Together went home with a new soccer kit, a trophy, gold medals and R15 000 cash. The runners-up, Johannesburg Pull Together, collected R8 000, new soccer kit and silver medals. The two teams beaten in the semi-finals, Tshituni Hot Spurs and Luvhalani Tshikuwi Stars, collected R4 000 each.
