The purpose of the meeting was for the SC Arsenal Football Club management to brief and present the squad of players that will represent the dealership at the National VW Junior Masters Tournament that takes place every two years in Johannesburg.
The 2019 edition of the tournament will be held from 5 – 7 December at Wits University, Johannesburg, where 16 teams of boys of under 12 years will represent each dealership spread across South Africa. This will be the first time that the VW Klerksdorp Dealership is represented at the tournament.

The teams are divided into groups of four into four streams –  with winners of the streams going into semi-finals and winners of the semi-finals –  producing an ultimate winner who will then go to represent South Africa at the famed International Gothia Cup in Sweden.
The Jouberton based club that will represent the dealership was chosen based on the shared vision of using sport to advance education and more importantly, the club has a very strong developmental feel with teams comprising of over 150 players under the ages 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19.
The Head Coach, Neo Hlongwane, is very passionate about Youth Development, so much so that he has stuck it out with SC Arsenal Football Club which is affiliated to Matlosana LFA. He could have easily sought employment with any of the ABSA Premiership Clubs or Glad Africa Championship Clubs because of his qualifications of SAFA B-License – which is a new requirement in the Premier Soccer League.

A send-off razzmatazz has been planned for the 4th of December at the VW Klerksdorp Dealership where the club will display their new kits, tracksuits and soccer balls.
