Nelson soccer clubs help soccer in Zambia

Nelson Youth Soccer, Nelson Rep Soccer and Soccer Quest have once again come through for Africa.

Soccer is an extremely popular sport in Nelson, as anyone can see on super soccer Saturdays through the spring and fall.  Zambian youth love the sport just as much if not more.

Thanks to generous local clubs, rural impoverished children and youth in Zambia will be playing soccer with a lot more style and pride.

For the last few years, Nelson soccer clubs have donated hundreds of jerseys, cleats, balls, and bags to NAKA, a local volunteer group working with rural communities in Kaoma, Zambia. These Zambian children have come to know and love Nelson for their ongoing generosity.
