Matabeleland Select Football Team
Football is the most universal sport in the world. It has the potential to unite us all. The Matabeleland Select football team (nicknamed Ingqungqulu Zika Mthwakazi) is made up of talented players from all over the regions of Midlands and Matabeleland in Zimbabwe. It prevailed over many great teams from many parts of Africa to win a coveted spot in the Confederation of Independent Football Associations (CONIFA) games in London from May 31 – June 10, 2018. They made us proud. They put Matabeleland in the brightest spotlight for the world to see what they are made of. They deserve our wholehearted support.
Save Matabeleland Coalition (SAMACO) is the administrative organization that is sponsoring this great team in conjunction with CONIFA. They have done a great job in putting this team together. This is only the beginning. There is a lot of work to be done to prepare this team so that it will be ready to play, compete and WIN in London next June. That is where you come in. We need all hands on deck. This amazing team of talented young players needs and deserves your moral support and more importantly your FINANCIAL support. It will cost US$35000.00 to get the squad to London. Any little bit goes a long way and simple math shows that with the support of 1000 people we can raise this amount with each person contributing US$35.00. Please spread the word and give generously.

The World Football Cup offers us a rare opportunity to showcase our identity, culture strength, talent, unity and the will to succeed as a people. The participation of Matabeleland in the London games can unite us, strengthen us, build us and most importantly propel us into the limelight and build pillars of recovery in dignity and self-respect.
The Team Seeding for the games in 2018 was completed in Northern Cyprus on January 5, 2018 and the Matabeland Select is in a group with Padania, Szekely Land and Kiribati. The complete draw appears below.
