As far back as November 2009, preparations were being made to execute one of the largest youth football tournaments that South Africa has ever seen. Funky's vision was to feed off of the excitement of the 2010 FIFA World Cup by having a similar tournament of his own, hosted by The Funky Foundation and played in the same format as the World Cup but with local schools representing the 32 qualifying countries. After months of preparation, the stage was set and the tournament was set to begin.
On the day of the tournament, teams from 32 schools showed up in rural Indermark and were given replica jerseys and flags of their adopted countries. Before the games began, a series of leaders took the stage to deliver speeches to the future role models participating in the tournament. Among the speakers was Hugh Dalton, the director of the Teboho Trust, who flew over from the United States just to be at the tournament. During his speech, Dalton thanked the players and the community for "allowing me to be a part of you" and said that it was a privilege and an honor to speak to the young men participating in the tournament.
At the end of the two-day tournament, it was Benny’s Academy (representing Algeria) who emerged victorious, led by their captain and tournament most-valuable player Wiseman Maluleke.
