72 Tribes Bola Games

This is a great football match of 72 tribes played right in the community at OlympAfrica, the heart of community activities. Participants are drawn from various sections and backgrounds, each carrying the branding of one Zambian tribe. A participating player shall represent each tribe, regardless of the player’s own tribe. The main event shall start at 09:00 hours, rolling through diverse activities between 09:00 hours and 12:00 hours. This day’s game shall mark the official kick-off of the “FREE from Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco Products” Tournament for Children and Adolescents, as detailed further below and on the African Bola website.

Several football balls made out of reused materials, especially plastic, will be presented at the end of the main game. Young people from various communities will have made all of the balls. Each ball shall be granted an educational award for the makers of the balls. This is to advance awareness of climate change and catalyse positive action among young people in communities towards good environmental practices. The balls will be the only ones used throughout the “FREE from Drugs and Alcohol” Tournament, slated to run in the second quarter of 2024.
