19 #African countries and Jamaica were represented by 24 teams at the 1st Annual Arican Community Soccer Tournament (ACST) in Los Angeles, California which wrapped up with #Sierra Leone’s ‘#Leone Stars’ taking the ACST Cup Title after defeating #Cameroon’s ‘L.A. #Lions’ team 2 to 1. The other African countries who participated include Ghana, Senegal, Zambia, Kenya, Cote D’Ivoire, DR Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Morrocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Togo, Tanzania and Uganda.
The tournament’s organizer, Vuvuzela Media and Marketing, a niche marketing group that focuses on Los Angeles’ African and West Indian communities, believes that the ACST is paving the way for the recognition and contribution of Blacks in soccer in Los Angeles.
“The African Community Soccer Tournament is an event that puts a face on our community and puts on display our love and passion for soccer while bringing us all together to celebrate our common bonds—Africa, soccer, and the city of Los Angeles” says #Charlotte Kouassi, company co-founder and Republic of Côte d’Ivoire native.
