The tournament, which is an initiative of the Norwegian Government, United Nations International Childrens Education Fund (UNICEF) and Sport in Action, attracted over 300 participants from 20 youth academies in Ndola.

In the girls category, Madalitso Soccer Academy whitewashed Sharp Wits Soccer Academy 4-0 to claim the championship which was contested by three teams.

Sport in Action director, Frankson Mushindu thanked the three sponsors for the gesture and said the tournament served as a catalyst for the youth to refrain from indulging in vices that would impact negatively on their lives.
