"I encourage you to show good exhibition. I am very hopeful that some you will have the chance to represent Somali U- 17 in the years to come," the executive committee member told the school children.

Somali Football Federation secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab emphasized that the SFF has two main objectives in holding the schools' tournaments. One is to start football development from the very beginning and the other is to create friendship among children from different schools and different neighborhoods.

The school's soccer tournament is a yearly event jointly organized by Somali Football Federation and the country's Students' Union.
