Last year Man Up and Go facilitated its first ever Soccer Tournaments in Jinja and Kampala. These tournaments were designed as an outreach to capture men in the community who might not otherwise be interested in coming to a men’s conference or to church. While there were many hiccups in the process, 34 total teams and over 500 men participated, with thousands of spectators showing up to watch. We even had local media and members of Parliament come to the championship match!
We are looking for a team of both men and women who have a passion for sports ministry and would like to organize and run these tournaments. The goal of the trip is to create a top-shelf tournament, build relationships, share the Gospel, and point the participants and spectators to the local church for discipleship.
Date: June or July (official dates TBD)
Length of Trip: 10 - 12 days
Estimated Cost: $3200 - $3600
