Zahira College Colombo has excelled in football in the last decade or so and produced a number of national players who later extended their service as coaching staff. With quite a number of championship wins, Zahira College is one of the most prominent football-playing school in Sri Lanka in the recent past.
For the 14th consecutive time, the past prefects association of Zahira College Colombo has stepped forward to organize the Super 16 soccer 7s championship and it’s scheduled to be held at the Race Course International Grounds on the 6th of October 2018.
The tournament will feature 16 football playing schools from all parts of the island. The Zahira Super 16 Soccer 7s championship is a great opportunity for youngsters who strive to make a name for themselves in the youth circuit. Furthermore, the 7s format is expected to allure a large number of spectators. The shorter format is presumed to create a buzz, especially due to the intensity, excitement, and thrill associated with the game.
The significance of this year’s tournament is the fact that it’s played at an internationally recognized venue. The idea is to give youngsters the exposure and the experience of playing in front of a large spectator base.
As the Football Federation of Sri Lanka contemplates qualifying for the FIFA World Cup in the year 2030, tournaments like the Super 16 Soccer 7s can help identify raw talent from various parts of Sri Lanka. Youngsters with potential can systematically thrive and develop their skills with the help of authorities from the FFSL.
In terms of quality and standards, the tournament will be officiated by local and foreign officials under the guidance of the Education ministry and the Football Federation of Sri Lanka.
Last year, a celebrity football match was organized ahead of the Super 16 tournament to mark 100 years of football at Zahira College Maradana. The tournament was a success, without a doubt.
