S. Sudan soccer team to participate in Saskatoon World Cup – Soccer Tournament

Saskatoon, CANADA – The Saskatoon World Cup soccer tournament is a celebration of diversity and cultures as well as an opportunity for local soccer players to showcase their talents on the field. While the tournament is competitive in nature, you see a sense of camaraderie and respect among the players as many of them play on same teams within the Saskatoon league. However, once on the field, it’s each country for itself and pride is on the line.

The Saskatoon World Cup definitely displays how diverse and rich in culture Saskatoon really is, given most of the team members live here in Saskatoon. Some players do come from other provinces/cities to help fill the rosters.
